This week’s In a Vase on Monday features a surprise (at least to me). A most unexpected event in my garden is the blooming of bearded iris ‘Clarence’ on this the first day of summer. It just had to take an important role in this week’s arrangement.
‘Clarence’ was beautiful and prolific in the garden in the spring, but I didn’t expect it to rebloom until the fall. The lavender in the falls is somewhat paler than the spring version, but nonetheless attractive.
Other players in the arrangement are a lace cap hydrangea and Becky daisies, backed by the lavender of the chaste tree. We have used the cobalt blue vase on many occasions, and the colors this week seemed to beg for its use once again.
Another perspective from above:
I want to add a brief photgraphic report on the pink calla lilies featured in our post two weeks ago. These have been in a vase for fourteen days now and still look as fresh as when they were cut.
Do you think there is a high probability that I just might be planting more calla lilies in the future?
Once again I send kudoes to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for introducing this idea of sharing what’s in bloom in our garden on a Monday. Please visit her site and see what she and others are including in their vases this day.
