In a Vase on Monday: A Few of My Favorite Things

There are several passions that drive my everyday life, and I am combining two of them today in this week’s In a Vase on Monday…gardening and tennis.

The flowers are lavender asters, red zinnias, pink Encore azaleas, and white annual vinca that came from a windblown, chance seedling.

It’s not fancy, but it holds water and flowers. I guess that makes it a vase.

Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see her vase this week and all the others around the blogosphere who join her each week.

    I have never thought of using my tennis ball cans for a vase so you’ve opened my eyes to a whole new idea.

    Nice vase! I always enjoy your Monday vase. Here I am putting the garden to bed for the winter. Sedum autumnalis and emperor still looking good but everything else is pretty much finished.

    Well done for combining two very different interests.

    What a wonderful blend of shades – and those asters look SO pretty without having a contrasting centre. I am not a tennis player, John, but I do value the importance of exercise, so well done you for keeping on playing
