My Garden is My Happy Place

Candyland climbing roseDon’t ya just love this Candyland rose?
My garden is performing a good month early this year.
Normally I would not see roses until mid to late June.
I am not complaining….
no, not at all.
Crown Princess margaretaAs I walk around the profusion of petaled glory each morning I breathe deep and revel in the scent.
Some perfumey roses..
Brunner actually override the aroma of the Eau de Poulet
(just my fancy way of saying chicken doo).
Cecile Brunner seems to like this spot on the chicken house.
She adds a bit of grace to a rather shabby little place.
I do need to do something different with that ugly window,
we had to cover it with plastic as the raccoons were trying to get the chickens through it.
hmm…project #112

Not to be overlooked (or smelled)
DSC_0004is the grape koolaid scent of the old fashioned Flags.
Their sweet scent floats into the living room when the doors are flung open to catch the evening breeze.

  Other Iris have little fragrance but their colors please the eye..

or a beauty in contrasting yellow and purple.

DSC_0005Presently there is a lot of purple in the garden but soon,
very soon,
that will change.


DSC_0006The clematis are at their height for the season.
Most will only put on this flamboyant Spring show,
but I have one that blooms all summer long.
DSC_0014More and more iris are opening their colorful buds each day.
I will come back and share a complete post of just Iris, I think.
Have a great day.
Oh, wait, just one more shot…

I beat the robins to these in my strawberry patch.

Lovely photos. Wondering if you know the name of the iris in the photo seventh from the top? I believe I have that one. Mine are several weeks from blooming here.

No I am sorry, I don't. That one was given to me by a friend who could not get it to grow in her garden (I think she has too much shade) so I am clueless as to its name.

I am so happy that I had some time to pop over here today and see what you shared! I am trying a couple of roses in my gardens this year, but not too confident in them, as I don't have much luck with them here. My iris's are just starting to get buds...yours are gorgeous!!!

It is great to finally be able to flaunt some of my own spring blessings and get inspired by some of the best gardens online! Thank you so much for joining in on my little party this week! I hope to see you again soon! Have a great weekend!
