Cathy of Rambling in the garden in the garden who hosts this popular meme guessed what would be in one vase today when she read my post last week about what I was enjoying in the garden, so to keep her interested and surprised I picked some flowers in a colour I don’t think I’ve ever used before – red!
Walking around the garden on a very cold but sunny Sunday morning I was surprised to find a red Anemone coronaria; the red variety has never been this early flowering in other years, continuing on I found a second, still in bud but this opened almost immediately it was bought into the warm house.
I already had the red leaf (it was part of a lovely surprise Christmas present from a friend). The leaf is in a test-tube and the glass vase is designed to hang on the wall.
I picked the yellow Iris (I. Grand Canari) on Friday and have been watching as first one, then two flowers opened. –there are four blooms on this one stem, it will be interesting to see if all four will open.
But the background is a bit fussy.
Do visit Cathy to see what others have found to pick from their gardens today. Or of course you could join us, we’d love to see what you can find to pick in your garden today; you’ll be glad you did, I promise.
Have a great week. Friday 22nd is Garden Bloggers’ Foliage Day (GBFD), do join in if you would like to share whatever foliage is pleasing you this month.
