This is what's blooming in my garden on the last day of May. The two irises were gifts, the purple and white one from my garden friend-mentor, Rita, and the dark purple from my in-laws' garden. The pink poppy, 'Paradiso', I treated myself to, just this spring, and am delighted that it is blooming. The lilies-of-the-valley I transplanted from our previous home three summers ago and they are just starting to take off in their new bed.
My backyard border (seen in full bloom in my blog's header) is lush with 'greenliness' at the present time. I recently read that if you intend to do perennial gardening you should 'learn to love green'. Good thing I do!
There are several things just ready to pop open in here though.
