So Much Rain

I'm not one to complain about rain here in
Texas - but it (flooding rains) came at a time when all the
roses and iris had just bloomed. Most were waterlogged and

not very pretty to photograph.
Red Knockouts in the front have gotten
large and are starting to hide the chain link fence.

Spanish Lavender

the rains

The fragrance is out of this world!

I'm trying to cover up the chain link fence!

The iris are really sparse this year.
Can't figure out why I have so few.
First time this has happened. Usually in
April they are just loaded with buds.

The new spanish lavender I planted several
weeks ago

Coreopsis with a large clump of
herb Rosemary in the background

The Delphinium is just
breathtaking!

A Tiger Swallowtail enjoying it.
Iris "Footloose" with caladiums and
snapdragons

Entrance to the garden - this is usually full
of iris blooms

My garden buddy Tigger passed away
this past January. He was 13. Miss you
