The Shrub Queen: Dilly Dally Daisy?
The Dill is still blooming madly in the herb container so of course I could not resist cutting some more and dilly dallying through the garden looking for something different to accompany the Dill. Sprigs of Rosemary were added. The rest of the vase are wildflowers from the garden. Some I planted and others appeared without encouragement from me.
Joining the Dill and Rosemary are: In yellow, Beach Sunflowers (some call them Beach Daisies Helianthus debilis); in red, Tropical Red Salvia (Salvia coccinea); I planted both of these native wildflowers. In blue, the native Ageratum (Ageratum houstonianum); the white flowers are Spanish Needles (Bidens alba). The Ageratum and Spanish Needles just pop up at an alarming rate. Seemingly from thin air.
My husband’s comment about this ” a very perky arrangement” There is something cheerful and perky about wildflowers and especially daisies. There aren’t really daisies in the vase, but the resemblance is clear. The vase is a thrift store find. I like the hot colored flowers displayed in earth tone pottery. With the Rosemary, Dill and Salvia this vase is leaving a lovely herbal scent in my foyer.
