So what's new? Boy, I just hate it when they sell me "blue" and it's as purple as can be! Does this look blue to you?
It's partially my own fault.
I've been gardening long enough to know that there are very few true blue flowers, yet I still fall for their less-than-honest selling tactics.
I planted this iris two years ago and this is the first bloom. It almost always takes two years for a new iris to bloom in my garden. Yet some of you get beautiful flowers the next year (I'm thinking of Dianne's beauties she just planted last fall).
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
