The past two weeks of warm temps have really brought our garden to life. I divided our irises last fall and the early bloomers are bursting forth with blooms.
The second rose in my garden to bloom this year is a China rose called ’Old Blush’. It dates back to the 1700′s and is an awesome rose to have in any garden. It’s also very easy to propagate.
We also had a surprise in the garden. I have never remembered having or planting yellow irises. Yet, this week several have appeared in our garden bed. Lovely blooms, just not sure how they got there….. Do you ever have surprise flowers appear in your garden?
I spoke at the Greater Atlanta Rose Society last night and I must say that this was a very welcoming bunch of folks! I even met on of my blogging buddies: Mia of Modern Mia Gardening. It’s been an eventful week! What’s happening in your garden this week?
