Another Monday, another vase to share with all the followers of Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, who asks us to find flowers to cut from our gardens and bring into our homes to enjoy.
I think I underestimate the value of Dutch Irises in my garden; I shouldn’t as there aren’t many plants that will survive for many years with no summer irrigation. In some years they appear at the same time as the first Bearded Irises and so perhaps I have undervalued them in comparison to the exuberant blooms of those.
I’ve seen a lovely white in another vase this year and I would love a pure blue the colour of Iris reticulata ‘Harmony’, so if you know the name of one like that I would be most grateful.
Continuing the Ikebana theme from last week, my second vase features a more delicately coloured Iris and some toning stems of other spring blooms.
I hope you have a lovely spring gardening week.
