I vowed to have no more than will fit in a bud vase.
These Gladioli bulbs came from Dollar Tree,
years back when they had such in early Spring.
One little spike of Larkspur left, tall enough
for the vase when I cut it off at the ground.
Regal Lilies were a fav of my mother.
Once when we visited, she had Regal lilies and
a sheaf of Larkspur in a white ceramic container.
Looking carefully for Black Swallowtail caterpillars, I cut some umbels of
parsley and some curling wisteria tendrils.
Regal Lilies have a heavy fragrance somewhat like the scent of Noxema skin cream. If we can't live with this smell, next week I'll use Orienpets that have little or no fragrance. I like the encouragement by Erin to use our garden flowers to make a weekly bouquet for the house.
