What a gorgeous day today was! While Second Daughter took herself to another Memorial Day Ceremony, I was able to find time to walk around the garden. The Butter and Sugar Irises are in full bloom.
The nameless purple irises that came from my Mother's garden are almost done. I've always loved the soft color of these.
Second Daughter's yellow rose, which almost died last year, is making a comeback.
My favorite sight in the garden this week is the rugosa rose flanked by the Purple Nine Bark shrub. The first flush of roses is passing, but the scent is still heavenly, and I love these colors together.
