I love simple little blue flax blossoms that last only one day - dancing on every breeze atop of fine ferny stems.
Happy little columbine seedlings transplanted (on Tuesday) into the soil surrounded by a coffee grounds mulch - thanks Laurie and Chris.
Variegated iris. Ten years ago when we moved into this home I planted a little perennial bed of the original plants variegated iris and echineae survived. For years I simply added things to fill in the holes. Last year when I increased the size of my beds I divided the iris and echineae and filled up huge swaths of bed. The blossom is simple - you are supposed to appreciate the stripy foliage. :)
