This is another clematis in bloom. It's on the gazebo and is just loaded with buds. The clematis seem to like the weather we're having this year - tons of buds and so far nice big blooms.
These are the first of my Siberian iris to open - but it looks like they will probably all pop since we have had this lovely rain. I think these are very pretty.
This is Therese Bugnet. Several years ago I read several articles written by people extolling the virtues of Therese Bugnet: it will form a nice hedge, a "must have" rose, it has beautiful blooms, it has a strong and pleasant fragrance. So I bought one 3 years ago. I was pretty disappointed the first two years - hardly any blooms and the plant seemed to be really struggling.
