Garden Goods: Flower Love

My foxgloves are blooming! Yay! I'm so excited. I didn't know what color they were; they were just labeled as 'mixed'. I have another on the other side of the porch but it's not blooming right now.
I have a second bouquet of white peonies that I put on the fireplace mantel in the front entry hall.
These are actually the same peonies as mine, but I got them from my mother's house; even though she only lives about 30 miles away from me, her peonies just started blooming and mine are done, so she gave me some of hers to make another bouquet for my house! She also added some yellow bearded iris that she had transplanted some years ago from my grandfather's house.
I thought this was a fun picture showing the staircase railing reflected in the mirror!

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!
Thanks for stopping by!

The foxgloves are beautiful, but we always had peonies when I was growing up, in CO. I just wish they would grow here - I LOVE those flowers. Beautiful, beautiful pictures!

How pretty your foxgloves are. And what a lovely bouquet of peonies and irises. Cool picture with the staircase railing reflected in the mirror.
