Flowers from my garden~
For those of you missing spring, here's a little dose of spring in a bouquet from my backyard. The bearded iris are so dependable, blooming several times a year without much care to begin with. They are always the first flowers to bloom after our winter is on its way out. The alstroemeria are also dependable and the long lasting blooms love the pots on our front walkway and make for wonderful cut flowers as well. The iris stalks are very tall so it was hard to capture them in the photo, but they sure look purty in the vase in the family room!
Lawns are mowed, flowers clipped and now the expected rain can come this way!
