Muddy, there is no such thing as a color Don't in the garden! If that was a rule I wouldn't get to garden at all. Rolling on the floor laughing

Sherry, WOW..impressive gardens. I have patches of weeds with irises in them you have pure beauty (and I love the cow!)

Everyone else, thanks for posting! I am inspired to add some irises now (thanks a lot) lol. I have never been a great fan of dwarfs but I have seen some that I may have to give a chance.

Keep those pics coming folks...this is fun!!

Zazinnia said:A color DONT!!! Fat orange Noid with pink roses. I use to love this orange but it doesn't go with much. I keep it because my husband likes it.
Thumb of 2015-05-19/Zazinnia/fe3537



Now I think that orange will look quite nice with the yellow roses about to open. And as for pink and orange - it is used together all the time in fashion, so I don't find it really horrendous. A bit uber-preppy, but okay.
