Around the Garden in Spring

The Irises and Roses are coming out!

There is something quite satisfying about cutting fresh flowers from your own garden. 

 I love this time of year, the irises are out and the roses are well on their way.

There is fresh growth on the hedges and the lawn is greening up.

The hedges have beautiful new green growth!

Harvey- camera shy!
Our newest area the Rose Garden - still needing to be hedged

The barley crop is ripening ready for harvest

 Harvest is getting pretty close and we are hoping to start in about 2 weeks!

I am rather impatient but this still relatively new garden is finally coming together. To anyone starting a new garden- hang in there it is worth the wait!

Hope you are all having a fabulous week.

PS If anyone has any tips on what to do with irises after they flower please share. I hate how they look after when the leaves die off.

Your garden is stunning Letitia, and thank you for such a timely post! It's given me some great motivation to persevere in trying to establish our garden.

Letitia, it's been such a long time since I popped over for a visit but as usual, your beautiful home and garden make me totally green with envy! You are one blessed chickadee!
