More Blooming Irises & Peonies

It is shaping up to be a beautiful Memorial Day weekend here in Minnesota. Temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees and sunshine makes for perfect gardening weather.  Four more of my reblooming iris are in full color.  Mariposa Skies, Tiger Honey, Orange Harvest and Mother Earth are the latest to show their colors.  One of the Marisposa Skies has three gigantic blooms and is so top heavy that I’m going to have to stake it up.

Steve and I made a trip to the local Home Depot last night and picked up the supplies for another raised bed garden, so I’ll be assembling and planting that this weekend.  Can’t wait to get started. The new raised bed will be planted with more tomatoes, peppers and Swiss chard.

One of the peonies is in full bloom also.  I’m not sure what the name of this one is, but it was transplanted from the farm where Steve grew up so it’s been blooming for many years.
