Now showing… What’s blooming in the garden now.

Now showing… What’s blooming in the garden now.

The gardening is becoming thick with foliage! Its so lush with all the rain and the increasing heat and humidity. The season has progressed from the Spring bloomers to the early Summer bloomers. The irises are really putting on a show.

This is a yellow water iris (Iris pseudacorus). It is growing in the lowest area of the yard in a pocket which is moist most of the time.


Pink Primrose (Oenothera speciosa) growing in the front bed among German irises. It can be a little weedy but its a good thing!


Blue Light clematis on the front side of the house. It opens up like below….


Within a few days becomes this ball.


And many German irises. The variety below is all over the yard. They were salvaged from a yard which some yuppies purchased and cleared everything out. They were all piled in the street.  I was glad I stopped and inquired!


And no day is complete without a Iced Mocha Latte from Cup-A-Joe.


And Oliver. Andy’s cat. He has a little attitude!
