Around this time of the year is when I get a bunch of lilies in bloom. For the next few weeks, I anticipate many flowers to admire. In this post are a few remaining bearded irises in bloom. The lilies here are new in my garden so it’s exciting to see them come out finally!
“CARE TO DANCE” BEARDED IRIS
“EDITH WOLFORD” BEARDED IRIS
“LUMARCO” BEARDED IRIS
I’m not sure what I was thinking when I ordered this bearded iris but the colors just don’t impress me… I love bright colors and this is very bland. Nevertheless, it bloomed. I feel bad that I am treating it like an unloved child 😦
“PLUM PERFECT” ROSES
Although these are not new flowers but this is the most fantastic display of these roses and of all my roses so far! I cut that one branch and displayed it in my house. I just love these so much!
This one is a nice little surprise to see it bloomed this morning. This is the first and ONLY flower I have on this plant so far. It is more of a citron yellow color with white. The camera did not fully capture the yellow in it.
It’s an awful lot of extra steps to resize all my photos for each post so I am posting less pictures these days. I have so many beautiful pictures this week but have to keep this post short.
I was planning to upload more photos for my next blog but WP said I used up 95% of space already and wants me to pay more for “upgrade”. I guess I will have to clean up my media library and reduce the size of my files in the next few posts to be able to blog. I don’t like having to pay so much especially when WP is profiting from having ads on my blog.
These next pictures will be the reduced sizes, let me know what you think.
VERBASCUM “SOUTHERN CHARM”
That’s all the flowers I can share today. I will try to share more pictures soon. Two of my favorite flowers, gladioluses and hibiscuses are getting ready to bloom this summer so I am excited about that!
Alstroemerias are another one of my favorite flowers because of how easy it is to grow them. In Southern California, we have great conditions for them to grow with little water and some naturalize very easily. They are usually used in flower arrangements.
I like them because they have interesting colors and strokes of colors inside their petals. They can be divided, so you get more for your money. They make great ground covers. This post has all of the alstroemerias growing in my garden.
While I am not a fan of white flowers usually, I got this from a friend and I kind of liked it. It looks pretty and delicate.
This NO ID pink flowers must re-seed like crazy because they can be found coming back year after year and spreading to various places in my garden.
That’s it for the alstroemerias. I must show you a picture of my cute baby Hunter in someone else’s bed.
Isn’t that ridiculously cute? He must think it’s fine.
