This remains my favorite of the tall bearded irises, I think. Queen of May, with Miss Kim dwarf lilacs behind.
That first one is Pallida Dalmatica, a great old iris buy kamagra online thailand used in perfumery.
The nice thing about making art (instead of stories) is that at the end of the day, you might have something pretty to look at. I think my favorite here is the dead nettle, oddly enough, though the explosion of pansies does make me smile. smile emoticon
These are little 5×7 framed originals — now comes the part I hate, figuring out how to price them. Sigh. Minimum $10 to cover the cost of the frame…
The irises are starting. 🙂 When I was a kid, irises were my favorite flower — I even used to do paper crafts where you made an iris out of paper, which is a complex and challenging process. Now, of course, there are too many flowers I love for me to have a favorite. But irises will always have a special place in my heart. I’m not sure of all the names, but I think the second is Batik, and the third is Captain’s Choice, both new to my garden this year.
It’s a funny sort of flower — you can’t really see the prettiest part unless you tip the blooms up. But here are the points in its favor: a) it’s hardy and deer / bunnies / squirrels won’t eat it, b) when it’s coming up, the pointy spikes add a unique and interesting element to your garden, c) when it starts to open, the delicate blooms are graceful, unusual, and lovely, and d) if you cut some and put them up on a mantel, with their tall stems, then the blooms are high enough that you can actually see the flower parts and enjoy them. They always make me think of fairy houses.
