I think the colour combination of these two flowers side-by-side is very appealing. Unfortunately the Irises are already on their last legs and the daffs are only just opening up, so they don't overlap much.
These flowers are at the base of our Crab apple tree, in the circular flower-bed I had made for me this time last year.
There are not as many bulbs in there as I would like, simply because the apple tree roots won't permit it, but at least it looks tidy. More daffs are opening every day, so hopefully it will look more impressive in a few days' time.
Blue and yellow are ok - but when we get to purple and orange, that's when the big smiles come out.ReplyDelete
It has been many years since I studied German but I knew instantly what your title meant. Strange how some things stick with one isn't it?ReplyDelete
Your flowers are pretty, it's a shame that they didn't coincide for longer. My miniature daffodils are just about to flower, I am excited...
I love your flower bed around your apple tree. I want one of those!ReplyDelete
Lovely fresh colours and looking so good in the bright sunlight...ReplyDelete
Blue and yellow is my all time fav combination! Beautiful, Mark!ReplyDelete
Beautiful flower photos1 I love Dutch Iris.ReplyDelete
They are beautiful Mark.ReplyDelete
Do your mini irises flower each year Mark as I heard they often only flower once. Is this one a particular variety?ReplyDelete
They look lovely together, and I think they're the perfect things to grow in the little round bed.ReplyDelete
Sue; My Irises (or at least most of them) seem to flower each year. I know this because I had four different ones flowering this year, and I only planted one type of bulb last Autumn.ReplyDelete
That's a cheerful display around the apple tree... still waiting for spring hereReplyDelete
Lovely display of bulb flowers; I am still waiting for my to come.ReplyDelete
