The 5th Spring

It is out 5th spring in the house. The first spring, we got nothing but leaves at the mailbox. The previous tenants had chopped down all the leaves after the blooms in order to make the house landscaping look better.

So 1st spring, when it was nothing but stems, I waited for daffodils and tulips, but none came.

2nd spring, no daffodils and tulips, but later on Iris bloomed.

3rd spring, a few more Irises.

This is 5th spring, perhaps you figured this out earlier than I did, there are NO daffodils and tulips planted there. Just Irises and lots of them!

So I planted some tulips, daffodils, a columbine, hyacinths, a poppy and more around the edgs of my clump of Irises.

With any luck, next year, I will get tulips and daffodils and of course, the many, many irises!
A very spring time photo. Beautiful irises and so many of them ready to bloom at the same time. I can't believe you have lived there for five years it just seems like yesterday that you moved

@grammyn Crazy how quickly time passes. Am still finishing changes on some of the inside rooms, but am finally spending more time with the gardens. In the blink of an eye, it will be ten years and I will be trying to figure out where that time went.
