Siberian Iris

The Siberian Iris this year are very beautiful but it seems that they have more foliage than flowers! I took a few photographs yesterday after a mid day rain, you can see a few water drops in the photos.

I also have more baby iris plants than I need, it appears all the rain we had last year scatted the seed everywhere!

Cathy at Words and Herbs posted jus the other day about her new garden wheels, so I thought I would post a picture of mine too! Cathy has a wonderful site, she loves gardening too!

My white rhododendron are about to bloom as well as a couple of my Japanese Iris, hope to post a few pictures later in the week. 🙂

 

Check out my Bluebird Houses, they make great gifts and you will enjoy watching the Bluebird nest! Building Bluebird Houses are fun and rewarding.

This is bearded iris Jesse’s Song. It is one of my favorite tall bearded iris and is always the first bearded iris to bloom in my garden. The petals are a beautiful soft violet and neatly ruffled. The stems are strong and are nearly 36 inches tall.

 Enjoy your weekend!

Southeastern five-lined skink lizard hiding on tree

A good friend an I went hiking Saturday on the mountain for a little more than 2 hours. The hike took us across the ridge and down across two small creeks. This was the first time for me in this area. I was surprised to fine the huge rocks with the spring.

This looks like a Eastern Fence lizard but I am not sure. He looks somewhat prehistoric.
