Many of the flowers in our front garden are in full bloom. This has been a wonderful spring for flowering plants. We have iris, gerbera daisies, pincushion flowers and daylilies.
The allium was beautiful this year. The first year to have it in my garden.
And the iris have been a wonderful surprise. We planted them last fall and I wasn’t sure if they would survive the winter since we planted them in mid-November.
I had no idea what color they were since I’d received them free from someone and the color markings had long worn off. We still have quite a few that haven’t bloomed so I know we’re in for more beautiful surprises. A yellow one with a white inside opened up a couple of days ago.
Last week I took an applique class and was amazed how much easier it was than I thought. I probably won’t make all of the wall hangings my grandmother made but it’s a great skill to have. My little bee wall hanging will definitely be finished and put near my sewing table.
