Arriving this week I was greeted by lambs on the lawn and the first of the ‘new’ Dutch Iris, “Autumn Princess”. I grabbed my camera to capture both before the lambs and mothers were ushered back into the driveway to make their way back through the fence.
The new Tulips are starting to bloom too, with Daydream opening a surprising lemon colour. It seems that the honey and apricot tones I was expecting only develop as the flowers age.
One of the lime trees, the one which bears the brunt of the wind looks like it may not make it, so I have picked all the limes to take any further pressure off it.
Narcissus Geranium, Avalanche, Early Cheer, and an unnamed Tazetta type with pale yellow cups combine with the yellow wall flowers to make a fresh perfume. A random orange cup, a yellow, and the first of the Thalias complete the Narcissi.
The dark purple stem with white flowers is a Sisrynchium, and the foliage and green flower heads are Dill.
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for continuing to inspire others to fill a vase of flowers to start the week.
