    I know, I know— they make that space look like a meadow.

    @Logan , beautiful foxgloves!

    Here are a couple of flowers from my yard.

    A red peony.

    An iris. This is "Alcazar", created by Phillippe de Vilmorin in Paris, France in 1905.

    A HorseChestnut tree.

    It's a bit large LOL

    Kind of alarming - the horse chestnut us usually buzzing with bees, you can hear them before you see them. This year... none. I hope it was just the chilly morning.

    @Zigs, your Sisyrichium is a couple of months ahead of mine. Very nice!

    @Droopy , I've never heard of Gentiana. Such a rich beautiful blue!

    Our vitex trees are beginning to bloom. We have two blues and one white. The white was bred by Texas A&M, and being a hybrid, we feared we lost it in last year's snow/ice event. It survived and is blooming nicely! Sorry the tree is not standing straight up, but the wind had other ideas.

    I like the looks of those trees. Do the blooms have any value for pollinators?
