  1. So many lovely flowers! That Siberian Iris is just magnificent. I love the creamy colour. The Ribbon Grass also caught my eye. Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you too.

  2. Thanks for the colors to this delaying spring ! Balloon flower is awesome. I've Artemisia too, it's beautiful combination with many colorful flowers, but it is spreads out - how do you manage with it ?

  3. So many beautiful flowers, and your Balloon flower, I just love its colour and shape.
    St Patrick day? We don't have that kind of celebration in Sweden.

    Have a nice day/Hans
