I also bought a few viola plants last week for a brass pot that I purchased at an auction sale a couple of years ago.
They look very nice on the porch railing with the Canada flag in the background. The blue is a piece of glass that was in our aquarium. Hubby was going to throw it out and I rescued it. I think it's so pretty.
I was also delighted when I opened the door this morning and found this beautiful iris was in bloom. I've been watching it for a few days. There are going to be three more that bloom on this plant and my Black Knight looks like it is going to have a bloom this year as well. When it comes out, I will get a photo. This one, which I forget the name of, and the Black Knight are my favorites. I do have heirloom iris that's been passed down from my great-grandmother, but not sure they are going to bloom this year. All of my iris need to be transplanted and I'm hoping to get that done late this summer. I'd like to have them all in one bed.
Sunday is Mother's Day and I'd like to wish all mothers and grandmothers a very special day with their loved ones.
