May Flowers


Look at all the different shades of purple in this bearded iris . . . 

The clematis is making a bold show . . .

Spiderwort (aka Tradescantia) is much more modest . . .

The lavender is lovely but . . .

Look at how the neon effect reveals those lyrical curves!

Siberian iris . . .

Clematis close up . . .

More bearded iris . . .

Wow, beautiful flowers! I really like that 'neon' effect, wish I had it.

Things are a bit sluggish over here, what with all the wet weather. Looking forward to more colour, soon.

Gorgeous flower show, Chelsea of the Carolina Mountains!

When I was a little girl, my brothers and I loved to watch a stand of Siberian Iris grow by a brook near my parents' house. We would run the few hundred yards every afternoon and check the progress of the buds. It was always a great joy to finally see the first one open. The brook was lined by a few white birch trees, the same one often sees in the Russian countryside.

The word that comes to mind is: "delicious!" Don't usually associate that word with flowers, but there it is. Not that I want to eat that iris, but it's delicious for my eyes. Love the neon effect - really brings out those curves!
