Its never occured to ne to cut irises for the house! I suppose its because mine have only started to bulk out this year and so I didnt want to remove the only flower stem in the garden.

I would like to have been an Edwardian lady as well - spending my days painting, embrodiering and pottering in the garden. However having read Virgins, Weeders and Queens (or a title to that effect) I dont think Edwardian ladies were really encouraged to garden

Oh Helen, don't go shattering my dreams!

And yes, I use iris quite often, but partly because they bulk up in a milisecond in my garden and it helps keep them in check.

Oh, how pretty your arrangement is! Having your kids help is such a sweet idea. I never thought of cutting my heuracha for an arrangement but now I have a new idea!! You are right about the beauty should be enjoyed indoors, as well...but sometimes I am 'afraid' to chop off the blooms too! I am going to need to work on that and bring some in this summer!!

Jan - 'help' may be overstating it, but they are always interesting company! And yes, I use Heuchera a lot - although it does tend to drop it's tiny flowerheads all over my kitchen table.
