We have had so much rain and nice weather here in Wisconsin that the flowers are thriving. This week the Iris and Peonies are really stealing the show.
I love this dark purple iris. The flowers are so big!
This light lavender iris doesn't have near the dramatic flower as the dark purple iris, but I love it just the same.
I missed this peony bloom while I was on vacation. It's actually past peak now as the pretty flower petals are starting to fall off already.
I have several of this light pink peony bushes in my yard.
Don't you just love peony blossoms?
Some of my lilac bushes are still blooming. This pink one is a late blooming variety and is in full bloom now. I couldn't be happier about it as I love the scent of lilacs!
When I returned home from vacation, I found my clematis in full bloom!
This plant has flowers as big as my hand!
Poppies are one of my favorite flowers. I love their large, bright, papery blooms. That is a pink painted daisy in front of it.
The dark centers of poppies are fascinating to me. Isn't this flower just so gorgeous?
Your probably seeing lots of Dames Rocket growing wild along the highways. I planted some along my wooded fence line years ago, and it has been happily growing ever since.
The hosta have been thriving with all this moisture, and so far, no sign of slug damage! I'm keeping an eye out for those pesky buggers though!
Have a Great Day! Amy

Oh my goodness! You have so many beautiful things that we can't grow here. The peonies remind me of dahlias, with their layers upon layers. Just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing your spectacular garden post on today's Maple Hill Hop!ReplyDelete
