Everything is busting with color! The Butterfly Iris are in full bloom- they are so striking. The recents rains have been incredible and you cannot deny that the plants aren't a little excited about it all.
The Lady Slippers are subtle yet beautiful. I took this photo the other day, but they still look just like this (only with even more blooms) so I thought I'd include the shot.
Things are blooming everywhere you look, the Texas Sage are stunning and in full show off mode and the birds and butterflies have been having a ball.
The Rose of Sharon are an old standby- they always remind me of Mom's house.
I have seen a dragonfly or two as well and the Hummingbirds deserve a special mention as they are going bezerk!!
Our little visitor yesterday- he brought his partner- they were hanging out around the tomato plants. Here is a picture of both of them, though not great.
Make sure and check out May Dreams Gardens for all the other blogs celebrating GBBD today and see what is blooming all over!
