A walk around the garden this afternoon found some nice flowers in bloom … for example the  Iris sibirica

irises in general seem to be doing well this summer –

Then there are the roses … this one is Rosa rubrifolia

There are a couple of climbers we have over an archway that are getting into their stride this year … the ones shown here are unknown varieties (ie: we lost the labels) but were bred in Canada for the cmlimate and do not need winter protection

Finally, a couple of other nice flowers …

The last flower is a Japanese Lilac which is neither Japanese nor a Lilac but that’s what happens to plant names these days!

… and a Water Lily

last, but not least, the Frogs were enjoying the weather too …
