It's been a dreary few days with weather turning quite cold, rainy and blustery. Spring? Doesn't feel like it today as I cranked up the Earth stove. But these latest blooms say otherwise:
Iris tall and graceful, full of complexity whe viewed close up. There are yellow one about to bloom as well.
Peonies, the poor man's rose. Although if you check current prices, you will find they are quite pricey.
