Rosa 'Gourmet Popcorn':
A favorite day lily, 'Bella Sera'. I so look forward to this one every year. Wrinkly crinkly, grand and regal all at once.
Iris 'Paprika Fonos':
The Santolina are about to open:
Clematis. This is either 'Niobe' or 'Ernest Markham':
And my favorite, the first flower of the year from 'Perle d'Azur:
The puppies did a number on the indoor palm. Serves me right for buying a palm tree. Then they jumped on the leather sofa and started barking at each other in complete ecstasy, after which they started chewing on the sofa.
Had to run to the store for a baby gate. The sofa is safe, the puppy, huffy. The palm is outta here.
