Good Fences #8

I've been so far behind this spring with getting ready for mulching in my perennial beds.  It's overwhelming.  A late spring, and falling behind had me in a bit of a panic.  Finally on Tuesday, I edged, weeded, and got the first bed ready for mulch.  That might have to wait until next week, after this upcoming rain is over.

The roses and iris usually look so pretty together.  The roses were hit really hard by the harsh winter and are not near bud stage yet.  In another week or two though, the iris will be in full bloom along this fence...


A couple of them are pushing buds.  Unfortunately, I don't remember the colors until they bloom...


I'll post another picture of the fence when the iris are in full bloom.  (and mulched)  It's much more exciting then!

On another note...a week ago, I got an email from my blogger friend TexWisGirl, telling me I'd won the giveaway for her hand drawn Hummingbird drawing.  I was so excited!  Yesterday as I was mowing, the mail lady came and waved a package at me that wouldn't fit in the mailbox. Here it is!  It's even more beautiful in real life, (and there's a glare on my photo)  I will treasure it Theresa...thanks so much!


She's an amazing artist and wonderful photographer.  Check out her blog at the link above...

  6. Just lovely. We have been having such a drought where we live that our roses actually started blooming the beginning of March. The poor things are really confused!

  9. I love a border of iris! These will look amazing against the fence. I have a much smaller line of iris which I hope will expand in the next few years. Wendy
