Mornin’ earthly gardeners!
Thought I’d post a photo of some of the new irises blooming now. We’re supposed to get some colder weather (as in the 30’s) this weekend, but for now the garden is thinking “SPRING is here!”
To me, irises are one of those “must have” flowers. After all, you plant them once and can leave them for years with no maintenance. And they take up very little room. I think for me they evoke memories of long-ago gardens like no other flower!
All of the grocery stores and garden centers around here are filled with pots of blooming bulbs and flowers and fragrant lilies. If you don’t have flowers blooming in your gardens, why not BUY a pot and give yourself a little early breath of spring? (And grab a bag of bulbs while you’re at it and grow your own for next year!)
Hope everyone has a Happy Easter!
