After weeks of rain and a soggy backyard, the perennials are coming into bloom. Early! Today, I took pictures of the pink and white peonies, the orange poppies, giant allium, and the blue and purple iris. The pond is encircled by yellow iris that have spread by their own methods of distribution from the original plant. On the surface of the pond are many first leaves of the lotus flowers, which look very similar to water lily leaves, but are too numerous to be the latter.
Hope you enjoy these images.
