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
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.

Have you been over to 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.
