Hi Fran. Thanks for the reminder to one and all! I loved writing the book and I loved doing the cover painting! Jane
wonderfully floral Francis 🙂
Beauty is truth and truth is beauty – and all of that. But truly, what is more wonderful than the beauty of a flower?
They do take a while to come on, but once they do, they’re amazing.
Yes, indeed! Thanks, Anneli. I saw your post today and loved the poem and pics of the irises. Mine are in full bloom now as well and what a showy bunch they are.
It’s a really good year for early blooms.
Beautiful, Francis! 😀
Many thanks, Dianne. It is fun to share the fruit of the hard work that goes on in the garden now and then.
We had a wonderland of wisteria with spring, Francis. Lots of different shades of purple and blooming everywhere you looked – it grows wild here.
Oh my gosh, I can’t even imagine the splendour of wisteria growing wild. How wonderful. Another thing to put on my growing bucket list – see wild wisteria!
Thanks, Mark. A vine like the wisteria, in full bloom, really does give a gardener something to brag about.
Stunningly beautiful Wisteria! Smells heavenly too…
Yes, the smell – this is the first year I have really noticed it and what a strange thing – it smells a bit like grape Kool-Aid to me. But heavenly all the same.
I’ve long admired wisteria in other people’s yards. It looks romantic to me. I’ve tried to grow it once, but was unsuccessful.
