Last fall I removed my 5 Itea's from my birdbath garden to a new bed. It was too wet in that bed and they were drowning. This year they are doing much better and are now in bloom.As you can see they are all blooming wonderfully. I like the fuzziness of their blooms. They have a light fragrance as well.The upper two photos are of the invasive shrub Privet. This is the wild variety that has these pretty white blooms. They also have the familiar sweet, sickeningly strong smell. For some odd reason though I like it. I guess it reminds me of what spring smells like.I planted this variegated iris a couple of fall's ago. It finally bloomed.Sorry I don't know the name of it. I like that it turned out this lavender color.
I'm hopeful I'll continue to have more blooms to show as the season progresses.
