Iris on Monday


Morning dew on the newly blooming Iris in our front garden beds. The color is just popping for May thanks to the warm weather and sunshine we are having.
Don't these shots just POP spring color?!!!!
I have yet to share the new trellis made out of copper my hubby added to the front porch area. The photo is featured in the bottom right corner of the collage above. The large clematis is LOVING the new area to climb up. Anxious to see the blooms this vine will put out this year. It is always a fabulous show of large white blooms.

Hoping this Monday is a productive one for you all in the garden. Happy Monday!

The irises are beautiful! I walked through the neighborhood last evening and one of my neighbors had some lovely irises in full bloom around her mailbox.

Happy Monday to you too!

Love the colors, waiting for the clematis to bloom. We were yesterday to a kids party in a garden and I saw 3 kinds of clematis - from pink to indigo. Beautiful indeed!

Hi~~ I love all the photos! I can practically smell the luscious grape scent of the irises. The form, texture and colors of your landscape are total eye candy.

Bren spring color is jumping off the page. I love the picture of your bed showing different shrubs and ornamental grasses(I think). It looks lovely.

Your beds are really beautiful! I wish I could get mine to look like that! It is slow, but sure.

You have a fabulous garden Bren. So colourful. Our Irises are up, and leafing out. It will be a while before they flower. I think they are the same colour as yours.
Your photos are beautiful.

I need to figure out why my irises aren't blooming. I've only seen one bloom this year. And in East Texas, I should be seeing more than that. Maybe I've moved them around too much...
