A Bucket of "Belles"...

..."Belles of Ireland" that is. This is one of my favorite "flowers" even though I'm not sure that they are flowers - Let's call it greenery. I got to bring a few home after the wedding and I jus' love them. They are tall, graceful, sculptural and unique.



And they are perfect in my big enamel pot that my sweet momma gifted me about a year ago. She said, "Sissy, I had to get this for you - it looks jus' like you!" And she was right - it is so me.

Hope you all have a beautiful day - and you can grow these wonderful plants in your cutting garden - try them out this year!!!

Cathy, Perfect idea! They are so unique and they do look so good in that enamel pot. I never heard of them, but I am going to look them up at the nursery. Happy Easter!

Those have such a great color and texture!! I bet they would be perfect in arrangements. We will definitely try to grow those. I must admit I had never heard of them until now, but I think my children will really enjoy them. They look soft, too. :)

They do make a beautiful arrangement. I have never heard of them, I will have to do a little research on those pretty Belles.
