Sunday = flea market day; and oh yeah, more flowers
Yes, Sunday is the day for the flea market. Today was the big antique market, where I get to see so many treasures, even if I can't take them all home with me. But if was a successful outing, just the same. I scored some very lovely bits and pieces and some gorgeous old mother of pearl buttons! And a few more filigree pieces.
My garden continues to delight me with new blooms.
An iris originally from Italy, not so spectacular in colour, but it has the divine scent of elderberry. Blooming in the background is catnip, which is being visited by dozens of butterflies.
I love this colour combination!
I'm stumped for the names of these two just now. Have to look them up again. The darker one has the most sumptuous velvety appearance...
