Today's Flower

This week I am recycling some photos of flowers taken in our garden last summer, in the hopes it may inspire Spring to arrive!!!

The first photo is a white Columbine, with a bleeding heart behind it:

This is my purple lupin with the sedum behind it.

My Martha Washington Geranium.


Purple Iris, that smells like Grape Kool Aid. If you ckick on the photo you will see something on the flower.

Hugs,

Those flowers are lovely Gill.

Our daffodils are in bud, I can't believe it. Mind you once they are out we always get at least one snow shower.

Your garden must be absolutely gorgeous!
Great little capture of the bee.
My sedum is popping through the ground. I inherited it so I have no idea if it should be. Hope the weather leaves it alone.

My post is at Carletta’s Captures.

Very beautiful flowers. I adore bleeding hearts but have no hope of growing them in our harsh, hot climate.
The old fashioned Irises do have susch a lovely perfume, I have some pale lilac ones that smell of vanilla.
