Flower Friday: May 13, 2022

 Happy Flower Friday!

It's been a glorious week here in the north east part of the country.  I hope you have had some time to enjoy the great outdoors too!

But of course she knew they were forget-me-nots!

Here in my garden I continue to weed but also did some pots with annuals.  It's a never ending battle with the squirrels versus Michele and her pots.  I go inside for a second and when I come back out, they have dug up my pots.  My usually benign and sweet Nana used to sprinkle red pepper in her pots with the comment:  "I'll burn their little a**es off!"  That never worked well for me so now I just put rocks in my pots.

Some of my allium are blooming but half of them were really burnt during the cold weather snaps we got this spring. 

The gorgeous irises that Lorraine gave me are in full bloom.  

Wishing you a safe and happy weekend!


  1. What a neat variety of plants here. I finally have tulips and daffodils blooming. My alliums also were slowed from the frosty days but there are 9 stalks with tiny buds so we'll see!

  2. Yes, that really is gorgeous iris!
