The front garden is pumping out its best display of the year: dwarf Siberian irises. These are show-stoppers, people. I do next to nothing for them and yet they come back year after year, growing more beautiful each spring. I bought the white ones on a whim and the blue/purples were a gift (bulbs for Christmas? Yes!). People walking their dogs stop and take photos with their cell phones. My yard may look like a jungle most of the time, but in April and May I am ever so proud.
