Garden Bloggers Bloom Day: April 2013

So, I'm a day late for Bloom Day, but there's lots of color in the garden right now. To start off, gaura against a backdrop of Mexican feathergrass. IMG_6172 Mutabilis rose IMG_2590 Getting to know what kind of irises I have planted around the house, which is very exciting. Now I have to remember to mark them, so I know what I'm dividing in the fall.

You do have a lot of color and for some odd reason it made me remember that I want to plant nasturtiums this year. Very nice photos!

Thanks, and I love nasturtiums! Saw some orange and yellow ones down the street, tumbling over a stone wall.

Lovely blossoms. I do love and envy that burgundy iris, because I've never had any luck with growing irises, an allegedly "easy" plant.

Thanks. This "easy" plant took a couple of years to bloom for me. The ones that were divided and transplanted (with a little bone meal added in the fall) are blooming only a little more than the ones on the side of the house that I didn't touch. So, still learning...
