Mondays in December can be difficult to find flowers to pick from our gardens to fill a vase. But Cathy at Rambling in the Garden challenges us every week and so we go rambling ourselves to see what we can find.
My ramblings yesterday discovered some Anemone coronaria, I love these as cut flowers, it was one of the flowers I would choose to buy as a cut flower when I used to buy flowers, I love their deep rich colours.
The Eryngium alpinum were sown on 15th January this year and have been flowering for about a month, but this is the first time I’ve picked any of them. I have more seed so will sow more as they should survive with minimum water next summer.
The Iris I showed you in a vase last week still has one bloom and one bud, the rest of the flowers all opened and has given me a lot of pleasure all week.
This was the Iris on 30th November, the bloom open now is the one still closed just under the top flower.
With thanks to Cathy for hosting, do visit her to see what everyone else has found this week. Have a good week.
