For this week’s In a Vase on Monday I had to resort to my reblooming bearded iris ‘Sunny Disposition’ once again, as it is one of the few perennials which has survived our frosty weather. With that being said, I am pleased to present our vase for the week. I apologize to any who may be tired of seeing the “same old iris,” but in truth it is what I have right now.
My Arranger suggested the addition of the foliage of the tea olive (Osmanthus fragrans). My two shrubs had been trimmed back several weeks before and, much to our surprise, it is putting out new growth. Its tiny blooms have so far resisted the frost, and, if you get close, you can smell its heavenly fragrance.
