Bloomday ~ July
On Saturday I took some photos of our new house and the flowers that are out now. It was great because I discovered that the iris that I thought was just early, was not the usual iris but a different kind. I think we originally got it from the roadside in the country, and I always thought it was a skinny insignificant thing. Wow, was I wrong.
I also with the help of hubby, took a photo of our white helebore, violets and wintersweet. We did some winter gardening and extended and shortened the bed, basically turned it around. We may move the rocks near the iris but at the moment I wouldn't move it, it is so pretty.
The top photo is from the garden here at this house. It is a wallflower. I have two nearly the same, but one has a white stripe in it.
The wintersweet is a small tree, I could only pick one flower. It has been moved, and when it is large I will have a view of it from the window. I was sitting on a rock to take the photo and was rewarded by a lovely smell of the flowers.
My helebore photo is on another post. We have moved the white ones twice, and we had lots of baby helebores, and some were moved last spring as well. The year has gone quickly for the plants.
Other plants out here are jonquils and iceland poppies.
