Of all the flowers in the garden right now, I am particularly thrilled with the Dutch Iris "Blue Magic" (see also my last post, Farewell to March). So I decided it was fair enough to clip one and build today's vase around it.

Worth the wait in more ways than one. I am finally getting to use flowers I have been waiting for all winter long - Calendulas planted with Monday vases in mind, Cerinthe which helpfully seeded itself into the North Border, and Tetraneuris which disappeared entirely late last year but has returned in a glory of little yellow daisies. All of these were just ready on Monday, and then I had to wait again. It does seem like a run of bad luck: a strained (sprained?) back all last week, light case of...

The weather has been perfect so far this January, and the plants are relishing it. While I feel that I need to improve my selections for wintertime bloom (it is, after all, a prime season in the desert), the showing for this month is quite cheering.

As I am posting woefully late for the Monday Vase meme and fairly late for Wordless Wednesday, I thought I would simply present some of both in a single post. First, Monday (as always hosted at Rambling in the Garden)! A lavender pink zinnia (courtesy of my sister's planting) and a rose from Sterling Silver combined to create this week's vase.
