The spurious irises have emerged! Its burnt-gold flowers, with drooping petals, perch atop tall stems, surrounded by skinny, sword-shaped leaves, sheltered beneath a cover of crepe myrtle.

Its distinctive colour stands out in opposition to a inexperienced background.

They shine behind the mauve and fleshy ‘Fiercely Fabulous’ mangave.

They make a golden fill between gray-stained deck ladders and sinuous grey crepe myrtle trunks. The magenta bud-shaped flowers of the ‘Little Grapes’ gomphrena add delicate distinction to the foreground.

The bluebonnets and redbuds and plums are gone. Mid-Spring is simply across the nook right here in Central Texas. Glad to see the spurs return as soon as extra.
