Hi Chris. Your Desert Eve red yarrow is very pretty. I am so fond of yarrow’s. Your new sign is wonderful. It is now an official rose garden.
Thanks Lona. I am planting 3 types of Yarrow this year, this one a yellow and a white. Hope they all do well for me….
Looks so lush and beautiful. Love the new yarrow. I don’t have that one …. YET! Looks like you will have iris very soon! Enjoy.
Can’t wait to see this iris bloom. Got it two years ago at The Birmingham Botanical Gardens Spring Plant Sale. I love white irises!
Michele, Thanks so much for visiting my blog. We are enjoying some lovely blooms this Spring…
