Sheriff, I love all your flowers!
The bleeding hearts are beautiful.
All my Iris' are now gone as well as the hyicynth and the lillies of the valley.
My Day lillies,roses,daisies and magnolia's are blooming now.
It's getting so hot that they won't last long. We're in the middle of a drought and have major watering restrictions! I live less than a mile from the largest man-made lake in the Country (maybe just east of the Mississip, not sure) and can't water!  :(

Thanks Lee

re: reply #160

I'm proud of all the ground cover & how well it's spreadin. There were just growin wild in the back yard (& in the jungle) and look how well they've spread - on the left side a the picture, and along the driveway (both in that new flowerbed, & in the cracks along the driveway) - might even reduce the ugly grass growth!

Those are gorgeous!
I don't think I've ever seen those type of flowers before!

As expected, a lighter blue iris has showed up. Thinkin this might not be the greatest showing - cause a the odd winter we had ... I was certainly diappointed with the tulips

You have quite the green thumb there Sheriff!
Very Pretty. I love Iris'. I have white, lavender and burgundy ones. Then, this year in the middle of my burgundy ones a yellow appeared? WTF, I don't know where it came from. It was really pretty though in the middle of all that deep burgundy it really stuck out!
