Okay, more like iris stubble. (They say to make your titles unique and descriptive to get more visitors!)
These were planted in the fall of 2004. My BIL thinned out his gardens and gave me probably 50-75 bulbs. I had three blooms in 2005 and they were gorgeous last summer. All deep purple. They are planted around a smoke bush. I'll take pictures when it blooms.
Here's the main garden. All the snow is gone! Yeah!! My first project for the garden will be to trench all the edges so we can get a load of mushroom compost. Love this stuff! It's smelly, but the plants really proper and grow. I don't think I mentioned, but you have probably surmised, that we only have perennials. No annuals for us. And nothing that needs lifted. That's just as bad as an annual in that it needs stored and replanted. Although, I do love glads. You can see a hint of purple on each side of the patio entrance. I'm not sure what those are called. They were hand-me-downs, too. They produce a yellow flower.
Until the next photo,
