A Lovely Garden

A Lovely Garden

This post is for the pure love of flowers and gardening.  I had a chance to visit a friends garden that is just spectacular.  A relaxing bit of a walk amongst some gorgeous blooms and I thought you would appreciate a snippet.
The Iris were just finishing up and I missed the best blooms by a week but what was left was still an eyeful.  This beauty is appropriately named “Cinnamon”.

This one has a floozy of a name…”Color Tart”.

But I know where she lives and I shall return.

I will have my garden gloves with me to pitch in and weed a bit.

I love how the backdrop plant just sets off the pink of this one.  I failed to get the name of either the backdrop plant or the Iris but like I said, I shall return.

But wait..  there is more, oh so much more.  I will spare your eyes today but I will share again.   There are rhododendrons and a few peonies too along with a few more Iris.
I so hope you enjoyed the Garden Tour so far!
Happy Gardening,
