Just ordered four heirloom iris for the back flowerbed. My wife picked out these four. To be honest, the Mrs Horace Darwin would not have probably been my choice as I am not a huge fan of white iris.

Soil temps are really pushing those perennials to sprout their growth.

Received my new Franklinia today and put it into a large pot. Nice two foot specimen with healthy looking root.

Just got word that a peach lemonade rose that I ordered is on the way.

Oh my gosh, I am so jealous of you all, but I have enjoyed the recent posts and especially the pictures! We in southwestern New Hampshire (I live just outside of Keene, zone 5a) got spoiled this past week by some beautiful weather -- high 50s and quite a bit of sun -- but come Monday, we're back to a high of 27 and a low of 14! Tuesday isn't much better with a high of 37 and a low of 20, still WAY below freezing. Wednesday we go way back up and hopefully will stay there.

The good news is that the snow is all gone and I can get out and start cleaning up my yard and the one big bed (of mostly heucheras, which I love) in my front yard. But alas, the next couple of weeks my work schedule will be nuts. Hopefully by the time I can breathe again in mid-April, the weather will have improved again.

Here's a picture of some varieties of heuchera that I HOPE to add to my bed this year:


I absolutely love their foliage -- I buy them for that much more than the little flowers, which bud for only a few weeks a year. Wish me luck!
