I might add a new similar post tonight. There are so many buds ready to open and it is supposed to be a warm day which will encourage blooming. This light lavender Iris is on the East side of the West garden.
The larger of the Japanese Peony bushes is starting to bloom.
I was left with a professional drawing of the plants surrounding the house. There are three kinds of lilacs. Blooming below is the Dwarf Korean Lilac.
Hiding behind the garage are these beautiful trumpet flowers on the Minuet Weigela shrub.
Not on the drawing are one of my favorites; Lily of the Valley. There was probably a large patch here that was removed for professional landscaping.
I think my project for today will be to log the South and West gardens.
