These weren't in their full glory on garden bloggers' bloom day (April 15), but I couldn't resist showing them now. Most of my front yard garden flowers are native or adapted and drought tolerant. As much as I appreciate them, not many are very showy, so I really look forward to the week or two my heirloom Byzantine gladiolus blooms. They came with the house, so someone planted these bulbs more than 20 years ago.
My only rose is this sun-loving miniature "Red Cascade" I've had for seven years. I really like this shade of red--not too pink and not too orange--plus it's super tough and dainty at the same time.
