there is more blooming than just one iris
by the big tree in front there are several more iris
this one is a bit past its prime but i wanted to show the variety
then there are the combos
fully blended and
i like to imagine that i planted only purple and white
and that the others are combinations
while i guess in theory combining traits is possible
i don’t think it happened under my tree
these little guys are there too
under the same tree
not sure what they are
but they sure are cute
::to be fair::
i didn’t plant any of these
my mom did
in the dark
she really is pretty good!
this is another plant
that seems to be doing something
just wish i knew what it was!
i guess it will be a surprise
there are 2 of them
randomly placed in beds
my guess is squirrels
anyone know what they are?
these are the pots in front of my house
these are the daisies that we (mom & i – notice a theme here??)
dug out of the meadow behind my house
(back behind the fallen-down willow and around the corner to the left)
once all the buds open they will be amazing!
we did a lot more of that this year
finding plants in the woods and fields around my house
and transplanting them
guess that will have to be another post
also from the front bed
and i planted this all by myself
two years ago
and it’s still alive!!
and this is the flowering crabapple that i planted last fall
i think they look like little alien eyes
poking out of the leaves
hopefully as summer progresses
there will be more to share
your back yard area looks amazing. my kids would lose themselves with joy, i think.
is it all your property?
I think your mystery plant is spiderwort. They can spread like crazy, but are easy to pull out. I’ve got some that I planted in my garden (purple flowers), they look good if kept under control. I’ve got others that just grow wild (blue flowers.
