this is the first iris to start to bloom it should open more when it warms up more.
the pic could have been better but I was cold :( and the wind was starting up again so I took a fast pic and went back in where it was warm.

Spider_Lily, what you see on the steps are Cryptanthus or earth stars there in the Bromeliad family they come in many colors and are easy to grow.

The strawberry jar was a trash find its in great shape now to plant strawberry in it, I also love the chives I use them alot and the grow back after being cut,then half barrel was a canna pot for a while, then a herb garden now I'm going to plant toms in it this year I'll have to replace it next year its starting to rot but I like the look of real wood.
You guys can come and play in my garden any time you want, I love having people share my garden and I won't even ask you to pull weeds :rolleyes:
