This is April 3 in the garden and almost everything is up. I am so happy that I found all those Iris Bulbs on closeout at Armstrong Nursery. They are making a blue river all around the yard. Mom was in the hospital when they started. I wish she could have seen them appear, but they are all up now and she is home and can see them in their glory. They are sharing the beds with weeds and ranunculas. I haven’t kept up with dead heading the ranunculas and anemones since I am not bringing bouquets in due to allergies that Mom has been experiencing and it is just not worth the risk. I will make some bouquets for photographing, and have been bringing them to some friends.
