A peak at my flower garden

This is a Japanese iris planted by the lavender bush. These roses smell "so wonderful".
During the winter my "hen and chickens" grew so much.

I have put out more hostas, day lilies, and a variety of annuals. I did cut back on the number of flower pots this year. This is due to the higher cost plus the additional work load in watering them. The ones I put out are low maintenance types. I don't like to dead head those type of plants that require it. I did plant something I have never grown before--it is called licorice and is used in pots for a trailing vine. It has small gray-silver looking leaves.
I will defintely be posting more pictures as the flowers start to grow and bloom.

I LOVE that iris! Breathtaking! Having my own garden is one of the very few things that I miss while living in the city. I did some 'urban gardening' this week---will try to post some photos soon!
