I'm happy to report still some flowers in the garden. This one was a surprise - a late bloomer. It is the palest purple iris I have ever seen. I bought the tuber at a Iris Society sale of unknowns. This is the first year it has bloomed. Lovely as it is I can see why it may not be cultivated and given a name. The flowers only last a couple of days. Here's another shot:
This rose is one my mother rooted for me from her beautiful roses. Last year this plant was only a stick with a few leaves and I thought I was going to lose it. Hasn't it come back beautifully? I'm looking for a place where I can plant it in the yard.
That's it from my garden. What's your favorite thing this friday? Go on over to Shay's Favorite Thing Friday button on my sidebar and check out what others are posting.
Oh! and if you didn't see my previous post, go back and see the already over 200 quilts that are on show. Enjoy!
