Last week there were but a few
purple buds peeking, teasing.

This week...out in all their glory.

When words escape,
flowers speak.
- Bruce W. Currie



In my garden there is a large place for sentiment.
My garden of flowers is also
my
garden of thoughts and dreams.
The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers,

and the dreams are as beautiful.
- Abram L. Urban



When you leave my garden don't forget
to pass by Kelli's House.

I LOVE IRIS!
Have you been over to http://onceinabluemooniris.blogspot.com/ to see her garden FULL of iris. Thousands of them.


Thanks for sharing these photos. Oh, I love the picture of the little girl knocking on the door. It looks better matted in the green.
