Just thought I'd share some flowers we have going right now. I didn't get photos of the red salvia, the heirloom & landscape roses (Old Blush and Martha Gonzolez), nor the desert plants that are blooming--rock rose, desert mallow, or cinquefoil. But some of my iris are "rebloomers" which means they bloom twice a year instead of once.
So today there were blooms of this purple and white (I've never met it before and don't know its name) and this pink one--"Pink Attraction"--which has a VERY sweet iris fragrance. Maybe it's the color, but it almost smells like bubble gum in iris form. The rose bushes are small right now--one because it was a 4" pot when I put it in the ground this summer, and other because I dug it up from out back and moved it--treating it quite ruthlessly in the process. Doesn't seem to have fazed them.
The before and after pictures are gratifying--the first is a listing photo w/ the giant house-eating junipers in place when we bought the house. The second was this morning.
Have a great weekend, y'all!
