In A Vase On Monday – Bearded Iris

My first love? Nature. I couldn’t live without my daily immersion, walking in the woods, visiting our waterfall or sitting by the river watching the birds going about their business. It is where I connect to the “peace which passes all understanding.” ~ Eliza Waters

Fluffy-white tall bearded iris steals the show this week. Bought at a local Iris Society sale  many years ago, I’ve lost the name, but I think it might be “Snowflake’ or something similar. Regardless, it is a good performer and a beauty we look forward to every year.

White rhododendron down low, and wooly lamb’s ears flower buds add a silvery touch. A sprig of rose-scented geranium adds texture. I was struck by the rusty-orange flowers of sheep’s sorrel (Rumex acetosellaand added it for contrast.

Harkening back to my childhood when I was first charmed by wildflowers, I picked a bouquet of Golden Alexander, buttercups, ground ivy, and starry white Ornithogalum umbellatum as accompaniment for the last two double poeticus narcissi.

Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In the Garden, who hosts a weekly meme to showcase arrangements created from our gardens. Wander over to see what gardeners all over the world are…
