June is when my garden jumps into full bloom and it is safe to say I will have flowers from now until the snow falls.
I have a huge patch of Irises that has all come into bloom over the past week. It will be divided and thinned once they finish flowering but for now my yard is filled with colour.
The first year this one has flowered. The base of the leaves also has a very interesting purple cast to it. It’s an intermediate sized Iris and would likely bridge the gap in flowering time between the dwarf Irises and the super tall ones but it had been kept in the shade then moved this spring when a sunny area opened up. It may actually move to the front yard.
Also very happy with the heavy rain we have finally started to get. Extremely dry winter and spring, barely any rain in April, nothing of value during a hot and generally dry May and now finally a week with rain and cooler temperatures is very welcome.
