Twenty Sixth thing: Returning home from vacation, I was anxious to see my garden. Last year we traveled at the same time of year but with an unseasonably early and hot spring (we’re talking mid-March and no final snowfall) everything was in bloom. We’d come home in time to see the end of our irises, just a few blooms left. Not so this year. They’d only just started opening and with just the right combo of rain, heat and sunshine, are coming into their season. They are so lovely that I had to make them my 27th thing. Here’s a little gallery of my irises that have bloomed so far:

Gorgeous! I love irises as well and have lots of them. Mine bloomed early this year, late April to mid May due to a unusually warm spring. Love your photos of them.
Thank you. In southern Michigan we are having a more typical Spring and were delighted to see them just starting. Took my Mom a bouquet of them today as they are her favorite. Until this year when she moved back to Michigan she’d always visit from July -September and only saw the pictures. My peonies are getting ready to pop and she’ll be getting bouquets of those fragrant beauties soon. 💐
