Our area is bursting with early summer flowers - here are some from our deck.
Allim are some of my favorite flowers - I like how they sway in the breeze - can you hear the bells ringing as they sway back and forth?
Pink Geraniums - no garden of mine is complete without them - I have three planters full of them
Violas - the scent on a sunny day is unbelievable
And Martha Washington Geraniums in a dark pink color after a bit of a rain storm
Pretty yellow pansies - they brighten up the deck
Petunias with Red Garden Phlox-Miss Mary
And Irises in a neighbor's yard - every year I wait for them to bloom in all their beauty.
And now we'll all go out to the Iris beds in Deming, WA - on the Mt. Baker Hiway. They are planted each Autumn and when they bloom in the summer you can pick the tubers you want to purchase and you'll get a text or phone call to come and pick up your beauties for Autumn planting.
We arrived at exactly the perfect day - all colors were in bloom and nothing was dying back yet.
So many beautiful colors - and the names are on nearby stakes so you know what you are getting.
A White Crowned Sparrow lit on one of the iris blossoms and sang for us for several minutes.
A song and pretty flowers - the perfect day!
On the way home we passed a nearby farm and in the front yard their Oriental Poppies were glorious
And at last - nearer home - my favorite flower truck - planted again this year with a nice variety of flowers - cheering travelers as they pass.
