The big, blowsy peonies started to open yesterday, but it was so hot and humid I didn’t cut any. They’ll be around for a few more weeks. Today I’d like to share another simple vase featuring the two flowers that have made my late May/early June garden quite spectacular this year: lupins and Iris. Since the vase is small, I chose Siberian Iris in two shades, with most of their tall stems cut by almost half. Although I pulled the vase together last Friday, I waited until Saturday to take the photo, with the early morning mist still laying on the field beyond our back porch. Thanks as always to Cathy at Rambling In The Garden, who every Monday encourages gardeners to share a vase highlighting what is growing in our gardens.
