White Clematis, White Iris and Baby Beauty

21 May

Today seems a day in particular need of beautiful things given the news from Oklahoma and the fact that two of my blogging friends have recently been bereaved.  Hudson and Patty, this post is for you.

1   This Clematis is called Spring Sensation and although it is only in its second year, has given us quite a few beautiful flowers.

2    Among the purple irises brought by our good friends the other evening were white buds waiting to open and today they have done and they are utterly beautiful.  The vase is now full of purple, white and green which just goes to show how well our friends know me and how well their gift was chosen.

    Sadness and sorrow really can be eased with kind words and flowers.
    One does not have to hear them or smell them. One wouldn’t think a healing sensation could possible come through from an inanimate piece of equipment, but I am sure your friends feel it.

    White, purple, and green – my favorite colors of flowers. Beautiful images, and a beautiful post!

      And the colours of the Suffragettes who strove so hard to get the vote for women In this country. My own Great Granny was imprisoned and force fed for the cause and I honour her and all the others in my purple, white and green garden. My friends chose their bouquet with that in mind. 🙂

          If you are interested in finding out more, you could go to my other blog. Here I transcribed a real diary of a Suffragette and she talks about being imprisoned. It makes fascinating, if disturbing, reading.
          You can find it here:

          Do comment if you read it. I was new to blogging then and am considering re-doing it in a different way.

          All the best to you 🙂
