Iris I Were A Flower

The first of my iris have bloomed.






Sheba and I were checking them out today.


Speaking of intruders in the garden, the ants have already claimed my peonies and they haven't even begun to bloom yet.


They don't hurt anything, they just remind me of all the bugs out there in nature. And it's not that far from bugs to snakes to who knows what.

I'll just concentrate on the beauty of it all right now.

Linking with Photo Feature Friday at A Rosy Note and Cottage Flora Thursday at Fishtail Cottage.

  1. The photos you took of your irises against the gray brick are awesome.
    Our peonies in Ontario are just starting to poke through the ground.

  2. I haven't seen much of my Iris' yet here in Nova Scotia. Yours are lovely.

    And I think I heard somewhere that ants and/or aphids are necessary on Peonies in opening the buds? Perhaps someone more experienced could verify if that's true?

  4. Love the irises Pam. We have some around here that grow wild. I can't wait for your peonies to bloom so that you can show them those to us too...aren't the ants with the peonies the wierdest thing?!

    Thanks for sharing your post at my party :)

  7. Iris I had some blooms in my own garden. And those ants? You do know that peonies won't open bloom without them, right? Happy Thursday night- xxoo Diana
