Hello, how are you? This has to be the earliest our roses have EVER bloomed! This is my "Scentimental" rose.. I just love how stripy and fragrant it is.
Last year I ordered two new irises from Breck's website and this one finally bloomed.. it's HUGE! It took it's time to open.. I watched the bud for days hoping it would do it's thing.
And the classy Siberian Iris.. lit by the rosy evening light.
A shot from our circular drive.. the old farm place really comes into it's own in the Spring.
Our pink rose in bloom.. all our roses have a nice scent.. I don't believe in roses that don't smell like a rose should! :-)
Pretty pink rosebud.
Yellow Iris in full sun.
Beige Iris.. really? I got these in a mixed bag of bulbs.. and this is why you don't buy mixed bags. :-)
I need some more bearded Iris. I'm missing some of classic colors of these. Kathy gave us several iris tubers and we planted them all and they've grown... but no flowers are showing.. maybe they needed a year to get used to their new home?
Kristi potted up my new succulents.. it will be fun to watch these fill out.
Kristi's unusual Flowering Maple - she wintered it over in the upstairs bathroom! :-)
The Double Delight. I've read that if you can only have one rose this should be it. I agree. It looks wonderful and smells DEEvine! My sister Denise's MIL did some rose testing for Jackson & Perkins and got to name this rose. :-)
Our gazebo is looking pretty with the hanging baskets. It's such a nice place to relax on the deck.
The pot on this basket is so big and heavy we were afraid to hang it, but it's doing fine and looks great.
I got two varieties of Lantana at the garden center we visited last week. I do love these flowers and how the buds look.
If you've never had these, you should get some.
I have to go pack my swim bag and head off to my Daughters of the American Revolution meeting and then to swim. Busy busy. I hope your week will be wonderful. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
