"After all, the only real roses are pink ones. They are the flowers of love and faith" Anne Shirley
The blue Iris is the only one that I have that is fragrant. It sends up very tall stalks which often need staking and sometimes need bringing inside where they can spread their lovely scent throughout the house.
and the purple Iris. Also needing a string to keep it off the ground.
These are the rose bushes that gave me the 5 blossoms that I cut. They are so full of blooms that I have planted another one beside these.
A white Iris just beginning to bloom. This is its first year so only one stalk. Behind it is a volunteer Hollyhock.
Hostas and Astilbes love the shady front of the house. The Bleeding heart does well too.
Thanks for coming by. Granny Marigold
