The Late Spring Garden


Late spring is one of the best times in my flower garden. Irises and peonies, my favorites. I went to the plant nursery this morning to buy vegetable plants for the vegetable garden. Picked up afew perennials, then came home and weeded the flower gardens all morning. Very therapeutic.

Gorgeous! My peonies are blooming their last right now and heavy rain beat them all the smithereens. :(

Every year I say I'm gonna get some irises and never do. Definitely this year!!

Our day lilies are starting to bud so we'll be seeing those soon. We have orange & a rusty color.

You must be about a month ahead of us in bloom time. Those are the only 2 peony blooms so far, but lots of buds. Lillies are definitely a summer bloomer here.

Our daylilies are now blooming like mad. Big, bright orange flowers. Also saw a number of pink flowers on my hydrangea. Also looks like there will be some phlox blooms soon.

What's the next color? :)
