|The garden provided plenty of other blooms to add zing to the soft peach flowers|
|Clockwise from the upper left, the vase contains: Alstroemeria 'Indian Summer', Agonis flexuosa 'Nana', Calendula 'Bronzed Beauty', Digitalis purpurea 'Dalmatian Peach', Grevillea 'Ned Kelly', and Lantana camara 'Irene'|
The bearded Iris on the back of the slope I'd hoped to use last week bloomed last Monday afternoon.
|The blooms are violet, not the deep purple I'd expected based on the color of the buds. I don't know the variety as the bulbs were planted by a prior owner. I believe this is the first time in the 7 years we've lived here that they've bloomed.|
Fortunately, our weather turned a bit cooler again last week (upper 60s to low-70sF) so there were still viable blooms available to cut this week.
|The back view is remarkably similar to the front view this week|
|Clockwise from the upper left, the vase contains: noID Iris germanica, Lathyrus odoratus, Coriandrum sativum, Cerinthe major purpurascens, and Polgala myrtifolia 'Mariposa'|
