|The relatively short stems of Antirrhinum majus 'Peachy Dragon' pulled all these colors together and gave me an excuse for recycling two stems of Leucospermum 'Spider' I'd cut last week and cutting a third to fill out the vase|
|In retrospect, I can't say why I didn't put the 2 foxglove stems together rather than separating them like this. Maybe I was unconsciously thinking of Easter bunnies?|
|This was the best I could do in way of an overhead shot|
|Clockwise from the upper left: Agonis flexuosa 'Nana', Arbutus 'Marina', Digitalis 'Dalmatian Peach', Leucospermum 'Spider', Narcissus 'Geranium', noID Ixia, pink Ranunculus and, in the middle, Antirrhinum majus 'Peachy Dragon'|
Remembering that a purple bearded Iris at the bottom of my back slope has been blooming off and on, I trooped down there to see if my timing was right to get a flowering stem for a vase, and I was gratified to find that it was. It determined the color scheme for my second vase.
|The blue Anemones stole the show from the noID Iris. I did some sleuthing online and determined that the dwarf Iris might be 'Darth Vader'.|
We had rain overnight and more is expected today and possibly at intervals through Thursday. As our season-to-date total is still well below the average for Los Angeles and as our rainy season generally ends in early April, the storm system is welcome. And it's not as if I need to drive anywhere...
I hope you are doing well. To see more IAVOM creations, visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden.
