A Flower Expected Everywhere

We have had lots of rain the past two weeks, the newly budding flowers have shown their gratitude and color is in abundance throughout the garden.
Oh, how I love this time of the year.


I sing of brooks, of blossoms, birds, and bowers:
Of April, May, of June, and July flowers.
I sing of Maypoles, Hock-carts, wassails, wakes,
Of bridegrooms, brides, and of their bridal cakes.


Robert Herrick 1591-1674

Your iris and clematis are lovely. Things just seem to pop after a rain. You take such beautiful pictures. Hope you will consider participating in my "Roses & People Photo Project". Blessings to you!

Love your mosaic. Your iris and clematis are a gorgeous color. What are the yellow ones? They look sort of like coreopsis in the photos.
Have a great weekend,
Babs

I just love the flag iris. I used to have some in my garden, but they have disappeared! I wonder where they have gone. Now I've seen yours, I must get more for myself.

Lovely mosaic.
