Iris and Peonies Blooming In My Garden

First - a purple and white iris - this is new to my garden - a neighbor down the street was having new landscaping installed and offered up soon to be replaced bearded iris to anyone who wanted them. She even dug these up for me! They bloomed on Friday and I was amazed by the color.

These Peonies aren't from my garden - they are from next door. Thankfully, my neighbors know I like to take pictures of things and I don't think they mind if I'm huddled on their porch with my camera. It's the light on these beauties that caught my eye.

With all the rain we've received, the flowers are really showing off! I wonder what will bloom next.

I don't have iris, but I've photographed a couple from other flower beds....and my peonies are only budded now, just waiting for the sun that should be here by the weekend! Can't wait!

I'm swooning over these irises and peonies Shirley! They're so pretty... I love the detail and light you captured. You and your neighbor(s) seem to have the loveliest gardens :)

Beautiful flowers, Shirly. I hope you have more gorgeous blooms to photograph!

My iris are just about to open. They are a difficult bloom to photo I find. I like the angle you chose for this one Shirley.

We are just a bit behind you, bloom-wise.
I am guessing our peonies will bloom this week.
Beautiful images!
