Ginger & Irisis

Here are my purple Irisis and yes there are house finches nesting in the bird house.

This is a ginger plant that is over 25 years old. It has never bloomed until this year. It is beautiful and smells so good. I close my eyes while smelling the flowers and I swear I could be in Hawaii. This is where this plant was bought originally.

Beautiful. Iris have always been my favorite flower.
Does it normally take 25 years for a ginger plant to bloom?

Iris was my wedding flower....your yard is looking it underwater yet?

Even though we have had LOTS of rain it seems to have been soaking into the ground. My problem is trying to mow in between storms. I mowed again yesterday and my muscles are a bit stiff today. I had to mow more than usual since it's going to rain again tonight.
