To be honest, I almost decided against doing a vase this week. The weather is so hot that even going out to pick flowers is not very fun! But I had an idea for what I wanted to combine, so I picked up my clippers and sallied out into the garden.
I decided to keep the vase full of simple edibles. There is a sunflower...
...and a few tomatoes from one of many volunteer tomato plants.
The bouquet is filled out with sage (Saliva officinalis).
I used my handthrown vase to hold them. Happily, the plant material perked up and opened out nicely after a little while. I don't intend to eat any of these, but it's fun to know that each element is fully edible.
Thank you to Cathy for hosting In a Vase on Monday!
Enjoy your week!
P.S. Just adding a shot of tonight's sunset... Temperatures still stood near 113 C/45 C, and there was plenty of dust in the air. But it was rather spectacular.
