Another small scale contribution for IAVOM from me this week, Iris reticulata ‘Katharine Hodgkin’, Viburnum bodnantense ‘Dawn’ and a sprig of ivy, tucked into the teapot of an IKEA children’s teaset, laid out on a scrap of fabric left over from all the tablecloths and cushions I made to grace our benches and tables at last year’s NGS open days. I am pleased to say that these iris seem to multiplying nicely and that Dawn has a number of similarly bobbly pink flowers at the tips of its stems.
See what the tea party looks like from above:
Aren’t the variegated throats of the iris pretty? And the streaks on the petals?
Are there any pretties in your garden today? Or less-than-pretties perhaps? Have you considered cutting them to bring inside and pop into a vase to bring an extra bit of happiness into your home? Please share them with us too, if you like, by leaving the usual links to and from this post.
