I am happy to report that we have survived the recent foul weather in the Carolinas. Many areas were hit with severe flooding and damaging winds, but my garden was spared all that. It’s just waterlogged. We came home after a weekend visit with eldest daughter to find a soaked carpet on the screened porch, debris under the crape myrtles (which must have been whipped about by the wind), and three and a half inches of water in my rain gauge.
Flowers are rather sparse in the garden just now as we move into fall, but I was delighted to find several ‘Clarence’ bearded iris in full bloom. How timely for a Vase on Monday.
The container is a Japanese Kenzan flower arranger.
Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see what she and others are sharing in their vases this Monday.
