    Your garden is simply gorgeous, Susie. Wonderful to take in on this chilly gray day here! Love the species iris, does your Salvia guarantica overwinter for you?

      Chilly gray almost sounds good Eliza! It’s 86F here this afternoon and no rain in sight. Very lovely blue sky though I must admit. Salvia guarantica does overwinter, as have all of these shown today. It’s exciting to see them filling out.

    Spring is doing it up right in your area, Susie! I never realized how much our Pacific Coast Iris (Iris douglasiana) flowers look like those of Iris tectorum until I saw your photo. Tectorum’s foliage is more attractive, though.

    One big sigh? I know how that feels too, Susie! When did your clematis start flowering? Is 86F tyical for the end of April?
