…I’m late for a very important date.
…late in so many ways. I’d been eyeing the bright red new foliage of Photinia for weeks but never got around to cutting it for a vase. As it transitioned from red to green, it passed through this coppery/bronze stage. One opportunity lost, another presents itself.
It seemed like the perfect foil for my favorite of all the Alliums: A. siculum bulgaricum.
Here’s a closer look, without the background noise. See why I like it?
An oddball iris with an oddball name: ‘Alley Oops’ (who thinks of these things?) made the cut as well.
A handful of pebbles serve the dual purpose of holding the stems in place and acting as a design element. Now I’ll send you to Rambling in the Garden, to see what Cathy and friends have found to put in a vase this week. About that very important date: it’s Monday of each and every week, for the punctual among you.
