April showers bring May flowers

This little Sweet William has bloomed most of the winter

Purple and yellow Iris

My mums are so confused with all the rain and cool temps.
These are in a pot and have been blooming up a storm.
The ones in the ground are right behind them.
That is Hardy Ground Cover Ivy peeking through.

This is Purple Autumn Sage.
It looks scraggly because I had to move it this year
when it got too big for its area.
It is coming back nicely.

Hardy Lantana.
This is one of 2 plants that I did not manage to kill out of 12.
So far it is the only one blooming.
Last year it was 4 ft across and almost as tall!

These are Yellow Iris from my late Grandfather's yard.
The bulbs are over 20 yrs old and have moved with the family.

This is a stunning colored iris that suprised me this year.
The picture does not do justice to the deep wine color.
So glad I stopped to snap the pic that day as it was gone the next.

That is some of the plants in my yard. With all the rain I have more flowers than ever!
If it stops raining I will get pictures of the roses out on the side yard.
I also have ferns growing rapidly in this weather that are a beautiful bronze and green.
