A brief stroll around the backyard with the camera found these lovelies awaiting me! I always like to snap the first blooms of the different flowers. The yellow iris is around the pond. The lavendar clematis is climbing on a trellis. The blue nepeta is hogging its share of a small bed. Dark pink peonies are weighing down the bush. And my husband's Paul Scarlet rose is climbing towards the sun. Love flowers and gardening. Just wish whatever makes me rashy and itchy would GO AWAY!!!
