My Iris’s both Bearded and Siberian have appeared this week. I’m sad that not very many of the bearded Iris bloomed this year. I have had so many colors purchased and placed throughout the garden, but these photographed in this post are the only ones that appeared this year. Any suggestions of what might help next years blooms ~ I’d certainly appreciate it!
I think the garden is teasing me with so many buds almost open ~ every day I wake up and look outside in hopes today will be the day to share with you, but so far A few Roses (all fragrant) appeared this week. Along just a few of our Peonies.
A new introduction to my Secret Garden landscape is a gorgeous Bihou Maple. When I was out taking photo’s of the garden today, I found it hidden beneath peonies, heuchra and foxglove. Too funny that this is smaller than my other perennials. But just you wait, soon enough it will be a glorious centerpiece of that part of the landscape.
Still lingering everywhere are bleeding hearts…once again, I just can’t have enough of these pretty flowers. Making their first appearances is Sweet William, Oriental Poppy, Onion blooms, and Rock Roses.
Thank you for checking out what is blooming here at Fishtail Cottage this week. I can’t possibly post every single photo – so if you want to see more garden photo’s, please check out my Facebook page! I hope to see you all at this weeks Garden Party! xoxo, tracie
