In A Vase On Monday – New Dawn

Eliza Waters

flower arrangementMy ‘New Dawn’ rose is having its best year yet– a tumble of delicate pink blooms cascade down its canes, covering the arbor.

Likewise, my Carolina Lupine (Thermopsis caroliniana), is peaking this week with dozens of yellow racemes. I don’t know why this isn’t more commonly grown, as it is spectacular.

I added a stem of white Foxglove (Digitalis purpurea alba), several stems of Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) for contrast, and several Daisy Fleabane (Erigeron annuus) as filler, all arranged in a bed of fragrant, white privet blooms that grow wild in our woods. While an invasive species here, the fragrance is pleasurable.
