These two bloomed on May 14.





Sussudio's last flower was fried on May 31, when it was 89 degrees.

French Lilacs bloomed on June 4 after everything else was done. It gets late afternoon shade.

Some of my irises want to stay and have been blooming for a while, but the first two are, I think, first blooms in my garden. I'll have to check if they've bloomed here before. Photos taken today. Half a dozen or more are still blooming.

TEN OF HEARTS
- This is a fantastic big bloom, first opened a day or so ago this season.

WONDERS NEVER CEASE - I'm partial to white standards over colorful falls.




SECRET PAST - just keeps blooming - first year blooming.

I've not been home much in recent days and so I missed the last of my iris blooms. I also cut many stalks of the late flowering irises to decorate burial sites on Memorial Day. But I noted that Wonders Never Cease had quite a few buds still developing at the beginning of the month.

Game Changer has put on a valiant effort to be the Last Iris Standing!

Photo taken this morning - just about all others are gone.
