Just gorgeous! especially the irises,
I think this year is the first we ever actually have a spring season instead of jumping from winter to summer.

So many beautiful blooms.
Have to check your zone...didn't think your season would be weeks before ours.
Lucky you.

So pretty, each and every bloom! I thought the last one was an azalea but I got my answer in your response to Heather's comment.

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Thanks Darla and Liz. Thanks for dropping by girls!

Kanak: So glad you dropped by. Many things are just about to bloom around here now. I am so glad.

Joe: I had rhubarb years ago but I do not remember if it had blooms or not. Short memory span nowadays :-)

My sweet rocket is blooming, too. In fact, the blooms are beginning to fade. I love that plant because it's tall, full of purply blooms, and reseeds generously. As a matter of fact, I don't think I ever planted any, but instead, the litle birdies planted seeds for me around my bird bath, and now I have a great crop! Aren't you enjoying this spring! So much fun playing in the dirt and watching the fruits of your labors growing and blooming!
