This is a yellow Iris that smells like powdered lemonade mix.
Ha ha! Made you sniff the screen!
This post is the first in a series of Sunday posts on my blog inspired by my garden.
It is the end of May and things are in bloom. I live in Michigan, incase you need to be reminded, things in bloom are a big deal here. It is a short and sweet season of gardening in this area.
I love my garden. I love all gardens. They are magical places to me. They are spiritual. They are my church. They are where I feel connected to all creation.
So I decided to devote one blogging day a week to my garden and its inspiration.
This is not going to be a how to or a source of practical knowledge about plants and planting, although I do have some knowledge of things, but rather a celebration of plants and bugs and flowers and dirt.
This is one of the things that feeds my creativity. Something deep and profound happens in a place where you collaborate with nature.
I wish you really could smell this.
its a bouquet of some of my earliest blooming roses.
Zephirine Drouhin, Therese Bugnet, Reine de Violettes, and Clotilde Soupert
along with the remaining Korean lilacs.
It is heaven.
