In A Vase on Monday – Red

Eliza Waters

Zinnia, Snapdragon flower arrangement

These flowers were picked on our CSA farm as part of our weekly harvest share. I love the bold red Snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus), yellow Statice (Limonium sinuatum) and the bicolor Zinnia (Z. elegans ‘Aztec’) that picks up the other two colors.

Monarda flower arrangementAlthough my red Beebalm (Monarda didyma) is just about finished, I picked a few remaining late blooms to put into a red bud vase along with Gooseneck Loosestrife (Lysimachia clethroides) and Queen Ann’s Lace (Daucus carota). A few sprigs of Oregano flowers (Origanum vulgareand red-tipped foliage of Flowering Quince (Chaenomeles speciosa) finishes the arrangement.
