Some of the flower garden plants are starting to show off. They are prone to do that this time of year. It's as if they say, "Hey, you liked the first flower. Whaddya think of the next 6 or 15?" Just driving down the streets of our little city of Slidell, La is interesting with all the wildflowers. Wild ageratum makes long blue swatches along the dry roadsides. The sides of the road that are wetter have pickerel rush, the sedges, cannas about to bloom and of course, Louisiana iris by the hundreds. And it's only just begun. We do suffer a long spell of not much in the heat of summer, but by fall, we are back in full bloom with a whole new set of flowers and colors. There is not a day in our part of the world when we cannot garden.
Just a taste of what's out there:
Iris Little Rock Skies
