We have been enjoying big vases full of these for the last couple of weeks fresh from our garden - it is such a treat to have fresh flowers. Our garden has not grown the flowers I would have liked it too as a result of the drought in Australia but our wet winter and sunny spring has at least for the short time given us a marvellous flush of Iris'. Please forgive me a little whinge here but in my blog hopping I cant help but see that people already have their October Homespun -as i only received Septembers 2 weeks ago I guess I won't be seeing mine for two weeks. As a subscriber in the city I find it soo annoying that all my friends get their magazine before me (last month I rang to complain and was told to go and buy it as it probably wasnt coming so I did which means I bought 2 magazines!!) So I am thinking of cancelling my subscription - I probably have enough magazines and projects lined up now.
