What's Blooming March 19 2011

The past couple of days have been gloriously sunny and warmer.  Sean came over on Thurs and while he cleaned my bicycle, I did some more cleanup in the front yard.  This morning I went to the vegetable garden and continued to tackle sifting and removing rocks from the beds.  I can't do it for very long because my back starts to ache - so I weeded the little flower garden and spread the community compost in it.  I'll go back tomorrow and pull all the leeks (the first harvest!) and cut some arugula and mustard that wintered over.  Also starting the tomato and pepper seeds tomorrow inside the house.

Here is what is blooming in my front yard garden right now

  1. Your plants look very similar to mine! I love the bottom blue and purple flowers, what are they?

  2. They are rock irises. Very lovely although they don't bloom for too long. I need to plant more of them.
