I finally sat down with Photobucket and tried to do a slideshow this morning. (they had changed from the last time I did one)

I know this has manybe too many pictures in it, but I couldn’t decide which ones to leave out. :} I hope you can see them ok.

Beautiful, Iris. Truly beautiful. I wish that I lived closer to you, and then I could experience its beauty first hand. The slide show gives me a taste of your creation in conjunction with Mother Nature. Thanks.

Such lovely flowers, Iris. I really liked the photo with the Oriel in front of the blooming magnolia. Also, what are those bright red flowers at the feet of your garden gnomes? You have a beautiful and magical yard, Iris, thank you for the photos. : )

I’m so glad you enjoyed the flower show…...even if it is too long. :) June has already started, so I wanted to get May’s pics done.

Time is flying and although I have been planting, planting, planting, I move so slowly, at the end of the day there is still more to do! I only have about 100 coleus left to find a spot for.. :D That’s just the coleus.

Robin, the red flowers with the gnomes is chandalabra primroses. I’ll see if I can find a close-up of one of them.

Here’s one where you can see the flower of the red primrose is on a tall flower stalk, unlike the English primroses where the flowers form a nosegay that sits on top of the leaves.

Stunning! I’m glad you left all the pics in, too! What a nice selection of early spring plants. Since I saw your photos of the bleeding heart, I realized I’m going to move to move mine – I won’t be able to get down the walkway to the patio! lol Love the photos : )

Iris, you have a beautiful garden and the selection of flowers is so wise. If they are looking so good in the slide show it will be a feast to the eyes to see them actually.
Watching the French Open kept me busy last few days and hence the late response to your blog.

Cindy, I have that same problem with one of the bleedinghearts that grow next to the garage door.

MsDeb, don’t get too lackadasical about the flowers. Remember I intend to bring lots of these annuals with me to the get-together. :)

I’m glad you caught this post of my spring flowers, Sharad, bf it got lost down the pages.
