A few watered down blooms….

Please excuse the quality of the images, it has been an awful wet mess and it’s a wonder any blooms aren’t flopped over in all this rain.  But wanted to share a few things today.  This purple/blue Salvia is on my patio table.  I love looking at this from the kitchen.

Alta California, and heirloom iris.  This one is getting hard to find, but luckily I have one.  It is a good parent plant the breeders say, it has many famous offspring.

Ruffled Goddess… a newer hybrid.  It is a very bright lavender/blue.  Very pleased with this one, may have to move it to a better spot so it can be seen easier.  It is at the back of the butterfly hill.

Old fashioned hearty geranium is just started to open up.

I have these tucked in several places, I love them.  I have several that rebloom, but this one doesn’t.

My first clematis blooms of the season.  This is “Snow Queen” and she is an early bloomer.  It was very overcast when I took this pic, she is a bright white with dark red/purplish centers.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
