I've Got Flowers

      I've been watching posts of flowers for months now. My flowers have finally come into bloom. Now I know you've seen these flowers before. I know you know what they look like. But I just wanted to show you that it finally happened here. We are late but at this time of the year we have long days so plants advance rapidly.

  8. Those iris are really beautiful, Red. So I've seen them before, that doesn't mean I don't appreciate them every bit as much today! :-)

  11. By all means you have flowers. I'm personally partial to day lilies. I never planted many iris because I didn't like dealing with their foliage the rest of the year. They are beautiful however.

  14. Yes your spring comes far later than ours. I love that iris. I got mine at a cemetery. I keep replanting parts of it everywhere so I won't ever loose the variety. My parents who lived in southern Iowa were usually three weeks earlier than where I live.

    1. I do like gardening but mostly vegetables.

  16. Some men like to grow vegetables and other men like to grow flowers. I am a vegetable man myself. I guess we are all different... "If you go to Red Deer City - Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair."

    1. Now I inherited the flowers. My first priority is the vegetable garden. My vegetable plants have just started to come up.

  17. When things start blooming they go fast. I think you are ahead of us. Here, regular peonies are not in bloom yet. Perhaps it is because you are more north and days are consequently longer than here.

    1. I live at Red Deer Alberta so that gives you an idea of how far north we are.

  18. Hi Red, Glad you posted the flower pictures. I never get tired of flower pictures. Of course, you already knew that since I post them so often. Keep us posted on the vegetable garden too.

  20. Now that you have shown us your flowers, Red, we will be looking forward to seeing the vegetable garden as you said you are a :veggie: guy.

  21. And they are beautiful flowers! Too bad our gardening season is so short. But better than nothing :)

  22. Have you really grown these beautiful irises and lilies? Glorious.

  23. Congratulations on your beautiful flowers. I find the north country has such a short growing season but everything grows super fast once it does. I know you are not exactly north but you are north of me ;-)

  24. Such gorgeous flowers! Your peonies are strikingly beautiful. I love that shade of pink. Your iris is doing really well too. Obviously, you have a green thumb for flowers.
