Flowers are blooming - many of my favorites. The dutch iris have peaked, but now is the time for the Siberian iris - a plant that tolerates heavier soil, more shade and has narrower leaves and smaller flowers.
They rarely flop over in wind or rain
The peonies have started blooming. Each time rain is forecast I run out and pick some as they do not withstand rain very well.
Ken laughed once when I told him that most peonies after a hard rain look like a spitball on a stick.
Ken's self seeding annual daisies are in many places in the yard.
The bees have been busy!
