Spring


Today was a REALLY STRESSFUL day - so I need to focus on something OTHER than WORK. Let's see, it was 88 yesterday, but only 64 today. But, while we had sun, I got some pictures of what I like about SPRING!

These flowers my husband had sent to me at work. Now the blooms are faded away and I am going to plant it in the ground.








This vine has the most beautiful and prolific flowers each spring. I wish they would last all summer.





















I love these iris. they practically grow like weeds in my front yard.




















More iris. I'd really like to get some more colors.


















This geranium is actually much brighter and prettier than it looks in this picture. This thing is growing like crazy, yet I have other geraniums that aren't doing nearly as well. Maybe it's the weeds that are keeping it alive :-)

Hope today is stress free! Your yard is beautiful -- I particularly like the white iris.

It's a lovely spring garden, but I have to laugh, because when you say 'geranium' you mean pelargonium, which is used only as an annual here in the northeast. I grow geraniums too, but they are hardy, perennial Geraniums (botanical genus) that really don't look a whole lot like your pelargonium. I wonder how the hardy genus name became the common name.

Thanks for the info, Nancy. I will have to look that up in my gardening books. They are sold as "geraniums" here on the west coast.
