The iris have done better this year than ever before in the Back Forty. The "sunrise" and "sunset" variety have outdone themselves. Behind them in the wilds of the Defunct Biddy Barn, you may be able to see some escaped lunaria, and those sticks belong to yardgranny's angel's trumpets, which survived the winter. I have yet to cut it back. The pink showy primrose is just beginning to pop.
The azalea is certainly a bright spot. I sure wish I could get some cuttings of it to root!
The roses on the new trellis in the front of the house seem to be very happy. Off to the left you can see the petunias in the Patio Garden going crazy and the cilantro has already bolted to flower. Way off in the background, the iris fill the front part of the Poison Garden.
I am very pleased with how much the yard is bursting with color.
Mission for Today: Play in the yard, potting up old-timey begonia rootings.
