And I do mean early. I hauled myself out of bed at six this morning. Good thing too, because by eight it was getting to warm to work in the sun, at least for this fifty something office worker.

So not in proportion. From bottom to the right, Strawberry growing in a landscape timer that's well on it's way to rotting out. First sunlight on the fern by the sidewalk. The irises have really started to bloom. This hot sun is so not good for them; and the blooms don't last very long anyway. The sun just hitting the seed heads of the blue oat grass. The red rhodie behind the arbor will probably be well and truly fried by the end of the weekend. They don't last very long, but we have others more shade that haven't even started to bloom yet.

Jackie, your place is just "blooming"  just gorgeous.  I really enjoy seeing your pictures on here.  The ferns in the woods are just now starting to open up here and it's time to figure out what I'm going to put in pots here, maybe some annuals in the yard.

The purple iris is my all time favorite flower.  Yellow iris is second.
