Garden Flowers

For some reason, I haven't been down to the beach for almost a month! In the absence of beach pictures, allow me to share some photos from our garden. This is an iris that came with the house. I think it's quite old fashioned looking.

The rest of these are roses that Steve has planted. I should know their names, but I can never remember them. I do know that many are named after Thomas Hardy's novels.


An Instagram version.

Finally, two "flowers", Melissa and Stephanie, at the Susquehanna River last weekend, when we were on our way home from our trip.

What's growing in your garden?


  1. The second flower is soooo pretty!! Thank you for sharing...Shari :)

  2. No much, in answer to your question. Our non-winter has turned into a non-spring, proof that the weather always evens out over the long haul. Am working on socks because my feet are so cold!
