The Late Spring Flowers In The Garden

There hasn't been a lot of things going on the last couple of days on the home front, so I thought I would show you around the yard.  It is so nice to be able to see the yard come to life.  Our winter was so cold that I was sure everything would be killed off.  A few things didn't come back like one Endless Summer hydrangea and the boxwood bushes, but most didn't suffer at all.  Here are a few blooming right now.

Yellow Iris

The irises are in full bloom in different areas of the garden.

Viola's that reseeded themselves from last year.

The wiegela bush is almost in full bloom


The blackberry bushes are in bloom.


A Pink and a White Poppy

The regular lilacs are finished blooming but these rather odoriferous ones are just starting.

There are flocks, dianthus, solomon seal and many other blossoms right now.  I'm sure I missed a few.  The early spring flowers are finished and in a week or so these late spring flowers will be done.  We will have the summer flowers taking over the garden then.  There is always something to look forward to.
