Each Monday, Cathy from Rambling in the garden invites us all to gather flowers and any other materials from our gardens and share them with each other.
Jonquils are the first bulbs to flower in my garden they come up in early winter, I always feel excited when I see their green tips pushing up through the ground. I think the single flower head guys have a fairly ordinary flower but make up for it with their perfume, I have had them inside for an hour and the whole back of the house is filled with their sweet perfume.
I have teamed them up with some branches of Perovskia ‘Blue Spire’ commonly known as Russian Sage. A deciduous perennial from the areas of Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan which does well in dry areas. The foliage and stems are silvery grey with violet flowers, as it’s at the end of it’s season it has a lovely silvery look with the dried tiny flower heads still attached.
I would love to see what you have found in your garden, head over to Cathy’s blog to see what others are sharing as well.
