Spring Flowers!!

Spring seems to moving right along. Cooler weather means the flowers are lasting much longer than usual. Works for us. I'm always a little sad to see spring color gone so fast. The lovely yellow iris were a transplant from friend Herma's yard. They seem so bright in the sunny front yard here.

There great purple iris were inherited from the previous owner. We didn't even know the bulbs were in the backyard. First year Joanne started taking out all the overgrown weed and unknown plants that weren't really doing well. Last year, much to our surprise these purple iris popped up! Seems all the moving around of dirt, etc Joanne did woke them up! A few other things are coming up that we had no idea were here. They get to stay. Sort of like Ruth's spirit (last owner) is still around and helping with "her garden."

These cute little grape hyacinths were planted by Joanne. Love the color!!

Can't forget our Maggie. Here she is lounging in a cool shady spot next to the back porch. The vines, next to her, are much bigger now and need to be tacked up to the siding, somehow, without doing any damage. Looks like another trip to Home Depot or a garden shop with how to questions. Of course the trick is to get home without adding more plants to the garden. :)
