But. despite it's "coolness" the month is starting off with wicked high temperatures. The backyard needed finishing and I needed to get a jump on the mower (well jump's the wrong word ~ push :/ ) before the temps rose. Otherwise, I wouldn't have the chance until after the weekend - the forecast is calling for more rain.
As I was rounding the corner to hit the backyard I had to stop and snap this picture. These irises are my most favorite of all the iris clusters in the gardens. The deep purple and butter cream yellow colors really relate well.
A friend (and GREAT gardener) in Massachusetts posted some beautiful pics of her peony that's in full bloom. Mine are not nearly as far, yet. Her great photos really make me so excited!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
