In a Vase on Monday: Hello Iris

It is so good to finally have some flowers to share for this Monday. I must say I admire those in the northern hemisphere who have managed to keep up posting vases through the winter, with our host Cathy (at Rambling in the Garden) being an inspirational example to us all!

Thanks Cathy!

Winter has been long, but we have had some fabulous weather lately and suddenly my Iris, some Crocuses and a few Primulas opened.

And hiding in there somewhere is one of my snowdrops. (A grand total of six have flowered now!)

As you can see in the photo above our grass is still brown from being covered in snow for so long, but there is new life and the buzzing of bees out there now. πŸ˜ƒ

I do hope you will take a look at Cathy’s post and find the links to all the other contributors too. Spring is springing all over the place, and although we will no doubt get another cold spell here in Bavaria before it really takes off I am enjoying it while I can, and enjoying seeing everyone else’s spring gardens too.

Hope March will be a good month for everyone!

  1. You have shared one of your precious snowdrops with us – thank you! And thank you for your other spring beauties – you must be so delighted to see them after your snow this winter. The circular picture shows them all off particularly well.

  2. I’m glad you’ve had some sunny weather at last, Cathy. Your arrangement is lovely and reminds me that I need to plant Iris reticulata next fall. As an aside, I also adore the moss and lichen-covered branch shown in your banner photo.

    • Thanks Kris. Iris reticulata are such a wonderful sight against pale green and brown, but a few crocus are now joining them and the hellebores will be next. πŸ˜ƒβ˜€οΈ

    • It has been lovely and warm and sunny Eliza. That north wind does keep us out of the shadier spots though! We often have a week or so of weather like this in February, but March can be harsh so I am trying not to get too excited!

  3. Isn’t nature wonderful, bouncing back after the snow. You vase with a lovely mixture of blooms and colours say ‘hello Spring’.

    • I am always amazed at how my hellebores get flattened by frost and then bounce back within minutes of temperatures rising above zero. Nature is wonderful indeed!

  4. A most pretty collection Cathy. I love the markings as well as the colours of iris reticulata. I wonder why your snowdrops don’t flourish – it was most noble of you to pick one for a vase πŸ˜„ Glad to hear that you have had some great weather recently. It’s still a fool’s spring in my books but it is getting nearer and nearer and will be welcome more than ever this year!

  5. Lovely Cathy! I appreciate any pictures of new spring flowers as I am just now having a few snowdrops show their sweet faces. Nothing else with color yet, but at least the snow is gone. Your sweet little arrangement makes my heart smile πŸ™‚

  6. That’s a good bit of blue. Is that Crocus tommasinianus? That is such a complicated name, and I really do not know how to spell it. I believe that I have seen it spelled in a variety of ways.

  7. I’m glad that the weather is picking up in Bavaria and that you have more and more flowers to make you smile each day. Your posy is delightful and the vase as well. I’ve been to my first basket weaving session yesterday and will hopefull finish it tomorrow πŸ™‚ . Love to you both xx

  8. Cathy finally have wonderful flowers in the garden! I love irises, crocuses, primroses and snowdrop: they are all divine little flowers that announce Spring, I love them and I love their colors. The little blue vase is lovely and the flowers look wonderful and magnificent in it. I love the photo on the grass: it says new life. I hope that the month of March is very good and happy, and that you do not have many big snow storms and yes, good weather and many flowers in your garden. Take good care of yourself and stay safe. Have a great weekend. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita πŸ˜˜πŸ˜€πŸ€—πŸŒ·πŸŒΈπŸŒΌ
