My photos were taken in Meadowlark Gardens, in Vienna, Virginia when these flowers were blooming last month.

Siberian Iris

Eastern Bluestar
Amsonia tabernaemontana

I really took to these pansies (not sure of their proper name) and loved the color combination of rusty orange and yellow.  I don't know the little purple flowers either.

  25. Oh the columbines and the Siberian iris are dazzling. That a great series, Denise! This week mind are from my back yard, a very easy plant -the only thing we need to do is trim it back very year, because it's a ground cover and very invasive (was here when we moved hee). Have a great weekend,and "see" you in a few days!
