My Iris are Finishing up

My garden is still pumping out blooms like crazy, it has been a stellar Spring.  The garden must’ve like the mild winter we enjoyed.

I love this one, it reminds me of the 50/50 ice cream bars I enjoyed as a kid.


My Tess English rose is providing the spark of red and climbing the arbor with relish.


My new Eden rose, it is a little bruised around the petals but these are the first blooms on her and she is a beauty.  I need to learn to paint roses like this. I will have to take this into the studio and work from it.


And a new first for me.  I am co-hosting a blog hop.  I hope I pull it off correctly.  I think it will be fun to see new blogs or at least new to me. 

So here we go…
