Every Monday, Cathy at Rambling in the Garden hosts gardeners around the world who share a vase of flowers, mainly cut from their own garden. This being early June in southeastern Ontario, Canada, the choices for a vase are finally extensive. Lupin, Lilac, Allium and oriental poppies are all making a statement, but I thought I’d showcase a few of my favourite tall bearded Iris – Iris germanica.
My Ikebana vase this week features a favourite of my back field honey bees – common garden chives – plus a lovely columbine found in a forgotten corner of the yard. I took advantage of the early morning light to photograph it outside yesterday.
It’s going to be a warm and mainly dry week here – perfect for the peonies that are about to burst open. Stay safe everyone.
