This morning the yellow, reblooming iris has opened adding a bright cheeriness to the small island in the southwest corner of the garden.
Until a better home could be found for them, these passalongs were planted here temporarily last fall in what was planned to be a part-shade garden. The maple that was providing the shade had to be removed as it was getting too large and its roots were spreading too far and wide. I need to give some thought to what to do with this island bed now that it is sunny again. This could be a fun little area to plant and the iris seems to like it.
