I planted these maroon colored double bearded Iris last year. They are blooming this year. They are so dark in color. I think they looked better in the picture on the package when I bought them.
Here are some red Gerber Daisies and red Petunias in an area with some of my homemade Mosaic stepping stones.
This rose bush is called Betty Boop.
This Rose bush is called St Patrick's
This Rose Bush is called Hot Shot
I have over 150 rose bushes throughout my 3 acre yard. I feed them every March, June and September. In January I cut them all back and the cycle starts over again.
This Rose Bush is called Double Delight. (a very popular rose bush)My Cymbidiums are blooming too. I keep them in my patio area all year long. They are from the orchid family. They bloom every spring and all the rest of the months they stay green. You can bring them inside your home too when they are in bloom. Their flowers last a long time. I like to cut some of the flowers and float them in a glass dish in one of my guest bedrooms. As long as you change the water often, they will last a month!For more Bloomin' Tuesday posts, please go visit Jean at Ms Green Thumb Jean's Blog!
