..well, I do know this one.... ...














they always look like they are sticking out a big hairy tongue....laaahhhhhhkkkk........

an old fashioned but always beautiful fav ...oh, but...I saw a lovely soft pink pastel one on a blog.... somebody thought Beverly Sills...named for the opera singer. It could certainly become a new favourite.










oh, look I found a pic of one !! ...aren't they beautiful? ... I definitely want to try one of these...even if it is a bit out of it's zone around here. I have two huge shrubs of Carol Mackie Daphne...and they are not supposed to do well here at all. Mine are almost 4 feet tall and the two of them have spread to over 8 feet in the front garden. The scent they have is unbelievable...it floats into the patio and into the kitchen windows...mmmmm..... almost like day lilies... and some petunias...it truly is amazing. Perhaps they are a bit protected against the north winds by a huge blue spruce near them. I could try Beverly right in front of the Carol Mackies.....I bet she'd bloom and sing there.. ..










hahah....sometimes there is snow on them... sometimes just sun...but, you will be subjected to my flowers all the same. Especially now that it is nice again and lots of different blooms are happening... Snowdrop anemones in the background...and some pale lilac creeping phlox...

How pretty they are. I wasn't even aware the irises had a scent so that's interesting to know. I don't mind seeing your flower pics at all ~ :)

Ohhhhh, these flowers are gorgeous!!
I don't have the best of luck with flowers so this year I've planted mostly day lillys and hostas :) They seem to thrive regardless of what I do. LOL
Thanks for visiting my blog♥
