It's rather late in the season for allysum, but here it is still blooming in one of my concrete cherub pots that flank each side of my greenhouse.
The other one holds beautiful penny denim violas that have been blooming since early spring here too. They were in the shade up until a couple weeks ago when I had the idea to make them a focal point for my greenhouse.
Any violas that I accidentally uproot now and again get added as floating flowers to a tarnished silver plate bowl right alongside my other potted plants.
It would be a shame to just throw them on the ground when they are still so pretty!
Same goes with my zinnias that I grew from seed for the purpose of cutting. I end up enjoying them right where they are planted inside our huge garden tee pee.
But the ones that veer off sideways, or get broken stems, end up as floating pretties too.
A closeup showing the fleur de lis pattern of trim on the top. Notice that peek of my new hydrangea tree (a birthday present from Henri) that is planted outside of the greenhouse.
It's a Limelight Hydrangea that is hardy to Zone 4! Surprisingly hardy for something so beautiful and delicate.
Enjoying more zinnias inside vintage bottles added to a galvanized tray carrier I found at Sweet Pea Gardens.
With a technique I learned from a post over at Heaven's Walk, here's a close up of a clay pot I altered with a free French graphic I found over the The Graphics Fairy.
It's potted up with some fragrant oregano. I wish I remembered the variety, as I adore the purple shade on the underside of the leaves.
See my tiny chandelier hanging at the peak? It holds a rose scented votive candle that adds to the heavenly fragrance in here!
Thanks for stopping by to see what I've been up to. Hope you have enjoyed your visit as much as I've enjoyed being able to share it with you!
