First year for these hybrid bearded Iris. Can you say GORGEOUS? : ) All images clickable to enlarge.
Lime and Raspberry Petunias, a new color blend for 2011! Planted with a pink verbena, a couple of young bush beans and a dark purple tradescanthia I wintered over. They're pale lavender/green now, but will darken as soon as they start growing more.
My front steps as of this morning. Pansies, Dianthus, Dusty Miller and Perilla in mix-n-match ceramic pots.
The new garden globe and emerging Siberian Iris. My Day lily leaves are almost 3 feet tall already.
I transplanted these German iris several years ago, and this is the first year they've bloomed.
A hybrid golden Iris about to bloom. The color will be great against the red brick chimney.
Siberian Iris. These have grown much taller than ever before, close to 3 feet!
