I am always a bit sad when iris season passes. They’re some of my favorite flowers, and as they decline I think, “What is it that I look forward to next?” I become so obsessed with the iris that I simply forget.

Fortunately, all the rain this year combined with relatively mild temperatures has given plenty to remind me:

    • Thank you! This is the first year the phlomis has bloomed for me; they take several years, apparently, to settle into a site before they bloom. But the rosette is evergreen, and the leaves are large and very attractive. I do love how unusual the phlomis bloom is. I hope it will last a while!
