Raindrops on Irises, Roses, Dahlias and Primroses

Happy floral Friday and welcome to "this week in my Maryland garden!" Last week I mentioned that my yellow irises would be blooming soon and, by God's grace, they are now. They're my favorite both because of their color and their lovely scent. I think they look even nicer with raindrops too.

Our rose bushes are full of flowers. I love the heavy bloom when they first start out for the year but appreciate that the roses will continue to produce flowers through fall.

The dahlia tubers that we planted aren't near blooming yet so hubby kindly bought me three smaller dahlias (yellow and sunset shown in this post and burgundy/deep red perhaps in a future post).

The primroses started blooming too. I love their deep pink veins.

This is the sunset dahlia I mentioned above. These flowers are just starting to open.

Thank you for visiting! May God bless you!
