Another Lovely Iris

This lovely opened up before all of the rain we had this weekend. I don't know who I got it from, but just like this one, I wish I had a dozen more!

With all of the rain this week, the garden looks a little beaten down. The areas that haven't been mulched are muddy and the plants look like they're covered in dirt. The mulched areas look a lot better, but I'm afraid to walk through the yard to get to them for a closer look. We definitely need a few days of dry, sunny weather to get things back on track!

This iris was planted nearly four years ago. It did absolutely nothing. No blooms. Didn't even grow a new leaf. So I moved it last year and it seems to be much happier now! I hope it's twice as happy next year.

Stop and Smell the Roses

Friends are out of town for the summer, so Hoku and I are looking after their garden. Hoku isn't much help, but he does enjoy the lovely roses.
