Some of you will remember the saga of last year’s wedding flowers when I was attempting to get both Narcissus and Muscari to flower simultaneously for my step-niece’s wedding. It involved giving up a certain amount of fridge space to hold the Narcissus Elka back, whilst bringing the Muscari into the warm to help them along.
All was fine on the day, and it’s been a lovely reminder that a few spare pots are reflowering now and have been brought inside and put on the kitchen table.
Sadly, the Muscari, got very eaten this year and I seem to have lost the majority of the flower buds.
The bonus is this gorgeous bunch of flowers brought by our neighbours (they of the red squirrel tree) when they came for lunch yesterday. The beautiful yellow iris (from their garden1) matches perfectly with the pale Narcissus and, together with the Blackthorn blossom, provides a gorgeous spring tableau. Thanks Jane!
Thanks too to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for hosting all our Monday vases.
