Springing It Up In The Garden

This is the first year these irises have bloomed since they were transplanted from my Mum's house before they tore it down, they weren't blooming at the time, so we could only hope we had dug up the correct plants. These blue irises are special, they smell wonderful and were a gift plant from our dear neighbor.

Eirene, keeping watch over my little flock of doves.

My collection of succulents, I just moved them into this large footed urn, they had been in the front yard. It will be easier to care for them now.

This is Atlanta, nestled in among the violas. (Both busts were named by the artist after mythological figures.)

The beautiful tulip Angelique!

I was so pleased to see that the ferns, sweet woodruff and other shade lovers I had moved or planted in my new shade garden have come back this year and are spreading!

These French beauties are so tall and graceful, they look like elegant ballet dancers.

That's a little peek at my garden this week, it's ever changing. Wishing you all the best of everything!!!

Blessings Friends!
