That is a lovely Iris. Lots of mine didn't open this year mostly because of division last year. Really like this one of yours though.

Hi, i've not been here for sometime, i've not visited Blotanicals too for being slow here in my PC. The color of your iris i've just seen for the first time. How about the proliferacy of blooms in the whole plantings? I am familiar only with the blue which we have here and i noticed a lot of leaves and few small flowers. Is this color different? thanks. ..Andrea

She's a beauty!

Your monkshood sure looks like a hosta to me, too. I hate when that happens after you have waited patiently all winter to see what you ordered!

Just getting ready to plant the veggie garden but 1st I went outside and took photos of the pre-garden and all the plants to be planted. Maybe I should do a blog post and put off doing the actual planting. LOL
