Dutch Iris are the most accomodating plant I have, I think. No matter how neglected and surrounded by weeds, they send up their waving silvery leaves in Spring, followed by tall clumps of flowers over a long time. But they don’t seem to seed down, so not a plant that wants to take over the world.
I’ve photographed some tamarillos and an orange with them, both fruits which are coming to the end of their seasons. Tiny plums are on the plum trees now and the apples are starting to flower.
Narcissus ‘Geranium’ is flowering now, it has a lovely scent. Pink Ixias were newly planted this year – I think the wet weather last summer killed off the ones planted last year. I’ll have to make a sandy place for them.
Head over to Rambling in the Garden to see more flowers and vases, and think about adding your own.
