This week’s bouquet comes from the large patches of perennial ageratum that have happily spread themselves around both the front and back gardens.
I don’t really ever remember planting them, and they have never done very well, but this year, they are everywhere. A bit of a thug, but because they provide such abundant blooms and color in late August, they are most welcome here.
I decided to make this an all purple vase since the ageratum marry nicely with the purple salvia. They almost look like mini lilac blooms from a distance.
Ageratum are fuzzy flowers, kind of like a fuzzy worn stuffed animal, that you want to reach out and stroke.
I’m not sure how well they will work as a cut flower since I’ve never used them before in a bouquet. The salvia don’t last but a few days, so this will most likely be a vase I’ll have to refill soon.
But, enjoy their soft beauty I will . . . while they last.
I hope they have brightened your day in a fuzzy loving kind of way.
