Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement using materials collected from our gardens.
My sisters from out-of-town and a local friend joined us for a simple Easter Sunday meal yesterday. It was a beautiful spring day. In late evening I stepped out into the garden and cut the most perfect flowers. I had been eyeing them all week.
From a bag of 100 assorted Ranunculus, planted in March 2016, just four plants developed. Having never grown them before I expected a better return, but oh, how lovely are the flowers of the four which persisted.
Placed into a small green ceramic vase with Iberis and Narcissus, the ranunculus are richly delightful—my new favorite flower.
Iberis sempervirens (Candytuft)
Green ceramic vase
I read these can be planted in fall in my planting zone so I will try again to grow them.
Thanks to Cathy at Rambling In The Garden for hosting and giving us a chance to express our flower arranging passion. Visit her to discover what she and others found this week in their gardens to place In A Vase On Monday.
