The Farms in Full Bloom

One of my blogger friend up north, still in the grips of winter,
  asked if I would show some pictures of my yard.
  I was going to, but last night we had a pretty good wind
and the yard looks terrible 

So.... Crystal and all who visit, 
come take a walk with me in the garden
and we can see whats blooming.
The Quince, Camellias and Azaleas are done.
The Rhododendrons are just starting.

This beautiful Iris was given to me by son Shane.
I love the purple beards on the yellow.

Daylilies, going to add more colors this year.

The Kousa Dogwood is in full bloom

 Joseph's Coat Roses are so pretty in the morning sunlight.

What I can't take a picture of, is how wonderful 
600+  Orange Trees fill the air with perfume and
the gentle hum of the honey bees working every tree.

It is heaven on earth.

That Iris is stunning! I can only imagine what the Orange Blossoms smell like! :)
