My garden has been such a delight this past week. The lilacs were out and the aroma was amazing. I cut them back last year because they were so tall I couldn't reach them for cutting, and this year I've enjoyed fresh bouquets every few days in the house.
Then my irises popped while the lilacs were still out and there was lavender everywhere. The tall, thin irises stood proud at about 2 ft off the ground with the tall, bushy lilacs as a background. Everything is green and fresh and the weeds aren't growing yet, so its the perfect time in the yard. I'm enjoyng every day of it.
Lilacs and irises following up the dogwoods and cherry trees - what a great time of year this is!
