Mid-November; what is there in the cut flower borders that is in good enough condition to place in a vase to join Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for the weekly opportunity to share a vase of flowers from our gardens.
I knew there were still some Zinnias, their foliage is now horrible but there were still plenty of blooms; many past their best through lack of cutting them on my part, for today’s vase I chose the white ones, Zinnia ‘Polar Bear’.
But the surprise this week is that the Acidanthera callianthus (Gladiolus murielae) that were a gift from friends in June 2014 have flowered!!! This is a flower I admire; I managed to grow it once when I lived in England and I’ve failed with it several times here. For sure I would consider it a flower of late summer (August) but I suppose it was just far too hot then; November seems far too late but I am very happy to them whenever they wish to flower.
With thanks to Cathy for hosting; what have you found to pick today, do share your vase with us all.
