Annual perennial photos.

Every year I take pictures of:

A bee messing up the pollen in a poppy.

The popped sepals of same.

A magnificent purple iris.

And then another.

Coming soon, inevitably: Pink poppies!

I killed my mimulus last summer, and my poinsettia didn't bloom this past winter. I'm going through annual perennial photo withdrawal.

That is a stunning iris!

On my monitor it looks deep blue.
Is it really deep blue?
Would you consider dividing it and trading for something?

Hugh said...

Eskarina, It's dark purple. It's probably due to be divided this year, so you can have some.

I do the same thing. I take the same pictures, over and over, of those exact same plants. Hard to resist, since those are some of the showier flowers on offer this time of year.
