a little yard work

Today is cool and cloudy, a little light mist. We did go out and do about an hour and a half of yard work, but when the mist came up it was too chilly to stay out. Temps are about 60*F.

DH moved the two Paradigm hostas that were sitting too close to the Blue Angel.

And he mulched them.

A few new irises are out today.

‘Holy Night’

Iris 'Holy Night'

This one came from my mother’s sister. Because we don’t know the name, we call it “Aunt Jane.” It has a smallish flower, but is intensely fragrant. The scent will carry quite a distance. Lovely!

Iris “Granny Ellis” ~ We were given this iris from the yard of a dear woman from our church family. Not knowing the actual name, we named it after her.

Just beginning to open is Iris ‘Fiord.’

I bought Iris ‘Clarence’ because that is my paternal grandfather’s name.
