Sprung spring

Finally! Some spring flowers!

This has been a weird spring; a weird year. Drought, seemingly endless. Hot days in January. Cold days in April. Fog and off shore winds.

But finally, April 15, my Pacific Coast hybrid irises are blooming in the front yard. They are a good two weeks later than 2012!

And oddly, too, milkweed, which is a summer bloomer, is blooming in the backyard.  Oh well. The Monarch butterflies like it.



Yes. This is certainly a very weird year.

No Irises here yet, but the daffodils are running wild.

Iris is my favorite flower. I've only seen one in bloom so far this spring but I know it is time. We had a warm, sunny, dry week and now it is rainy and cool again.

I worry about your drought!
