Yard Photos

I'm not really sure what happened to my last flower post but the photos all just stopped working. I haven't deleted any photos from google, so I'm not sure what happened. I took down the post because it didn't make much sense to leave it up with all the photos missing. I'll try again and see if it sticks better.

It's been raining for most of the past week which has been great for our starts, but not so good for our apple blossoms. I guess we'll have a lousy apple crop again this year.
Tequila Sunrise Columbine/Aquilegia skinneri 'Tequila Sunrise'
Iris 'Aggressively Forward'
This plant is a volunteer; I would not have planted it in the same spot
as a Hellebore. I think it's a Celandine Poppy. We may try and figure out
how to dig it out later this summer and move it to a better spot.
Pacific Iris 'Geoff's'
Corydalis 'Canary Feathers'
Bleeding Heart 'Valentine'/Dicentra spectabilis 'Valentine'
Heuchera villosa 'Caramel'
This rhododendron was in the front yard when we moved in. I'm embarrassed to admit I had no idea what color the flowers were until this week. I don't know what variety it is.
This is the Forever Purple Heuchera in the front planting strip. I'm not loving the ground cover surrounding it. The Ajuga reptans 'Catlin's Giant' is being way too aggressive and is crowding out the columbine and corydalis we also put in. I need to rethink whether we want to leave it in this bed.
The wisteria is about to be beautiful.


  1. What gorgeous color you're enjoying.

    I've been reading that Google has been removing random photos from blogs lately. Not sure what it's about...

    1. That's a good way to get people to abandon their platform.

  2. The celandine poppy probably came from me. Collect the seeds and spread them about.

  3. Your about a month ahead of Wisconsin. It nice to see what I can look forward too.

    1. Wow, a whole month? I didn't realize your season was shifted so much from the coasts. It was 70 degrees today. I spent quite a while sitting outside enjoying the sun while we have it.
