Dwarf Iris , Snowdrops and Buddy Holly

04 Feb

We have chimney pots full of flowers! Here is one blooming with Dwarf Iris Injad Sherwood.  They don’t look like the packet but are lovely anyway. You can just spot the first Tete a Tete further back in the wall.

I love Snowdrops.

On this day in 1959 Buddy Holly died. I was too young to know his music then, just remember the older girls in the cloakroom at school weeping and wailing and I didn’t understand why!  Here’s one that I grew to love, “Every Day.”

    So envious that you have blooms this early in the year. Our nighttime temperatures this week were in the low teens. You probably know the song “American Pie,” Don McLean’s song about “the day the music died.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFI0K5FMMqE

    The irises are a lovely colour. I do like the blue ones.

        Nice that they take it in turns. I have yellow ones almost open!
