This spring the irises have been just spectacular. I don't know why becasue we aren't having much rain. It must be that they like this kind of weather. I always thought they liked more water. A spirea and a double mock orange is also blooming in this photo.
The Hydrangeas appear to be responding to the mild winter we had. If they aren't blooming now they sure are setting buds for a big show. Jackmanii, Climbing Hydrangea and Oak Leaf Hydrangea blooming in the photo below.
Speaking of big shows. The annual Mock Orange stravaganza is in full tilt. The fragrance and bright beautiful blooms show off for everyone.
This is a honeysuckle that I am making into a standard. It needs a haircut but I will wait until it stops blooming. All the honeysuckle in the garden are blooming now. It is good for the hummingbirds.
The white climbing rose I got for my birthday last year is blooming up a storm. One of these days it will climb up over this arch where the red one will meet up with it.
