happenings in the yard


The azaleas are out, the grass is turning green and the dog spends hours basking in the in the sun.  Memphis is magical in the spring.


 

Peony buds make fine circles.


The columbine is all up in the peony, but I don't mind because the red and purple are gorgeous together.

This iris is actually made from a tiny satin prom dress, bound and ready to burst.  I'm not sure which is prettier, the bud...


or the fully open flower?


More irises....




Herbs and annuals ready to go in the ground...
