      Thanks. I’ve been trying to catch up on garden chores. You won’t believe how many pictures were ruined due to weeds photo-bombing my efforts. Making slow progress.

      Spring seems to happen all at once here, that is true, Kris. The peonies have been a great surprise this year. Saving a few buds in the refrigerator.

    I love watching peonies open out. Ours are not quite there yet, so it is lovely to get a preview. You have some beautiful irises too! ‘Raspberry Blush’ is such a gorgeous fruity colour!

    Wow! Your garden did put on a wonderful show for your daughter’s visit. Love all the Irises and I can see the Peonies are doing fabulously this year.

      Yes, the peonies have done well. It’s the first time in many years my daughter has been able to see the garden at its peak. Was such a happy week getting to see her.

      Have to admit I bought and planted those dahlias recently Cathy. Was surprised to find them at a garden center. Hope they’ll continue blooming all summer as advertised.

    Lovely, all of them! Your meditation circle is especially impressive! You are just a little bit ahead of me now. My Peonies are budding and my Irises are getting larger every day. The plants grow so fast this time of year.

      Interesting how quickly your part of the world catches up. Enjoy Beth! So sorry to miss meeting you at Fling this year. Maybe Denver…

    Thanks for the tour! Of your Irises, I think my favorites are ‘Immortality’ and the Japanese Iris. Love all the dark red Snapdragons around the Meditation Circle.

      Iris ‘Immortality’ has a huge bloom, the Japanese one is much more demure. Those snapdragons have overwintered for several years now.

    I have three white bearded iris. I would guess that one is ‘Immortality’. It is a common white. Pink bearded iris is what got us in trouble back in school. I can send you a like if you like.
