Stefanie had posted pictures of her peonies earlier. I finally am getting around to posting a few pictures of some of the flowers from earlier in the year. The drought has wreaked havok with the plants in my yard. The pepper plants and the hibiscus didn’t survive the water restrictions, unfortunately.
From the end of March, the dogwood blooms.
And a closeup of one of the blooms.
Then one of the azaleas from the same time.
Then an iris that I’ve got the orientation in the picture wrong. It really isn’t growing down, but you can still see the lovely color that it does have. That pictures is from the beginning of April.
Now the lavendar is growing sideways. The picture is from the first of June.
All the blooms from these excepts for the lavendar are gone. The lavendar has a little bit of the blooms still on the stalks, but they are in sad shape. I have a picture of a very poor looking coneflower, but it isn’t in good shape at all.
Welcome to my yard.
