More Irises

I love this time of year. Every day my garden changes and new blooms appear. This morning the second variety of my irises blossomed, surrounded by my beautiful pink peonies.

What’s Blooming in July: a Look at my Zone 3 Garden


A lovely bunch of bees have made my back garden a part of their evening tour. I’m flattered. They buzz from Dahlias to Cosmos, but particularly enjoy the Allium. Perhaps it’s the smell, or maybe the bright pink flowers that attracts them to this relative of garlic and chives. It doesn’t matter to me, as long as they enjoy my garden and make themselves at home. Buzz buzz.
