It must be a purple-and-yellow kind of day

Over the weekend I saw these violas at the garden store, and couldn’t help bringing them home. The colors just made me happy.

Today I was out in the garden, and noticed that in the next garden bed, the clematis I planted last year has started to bloom. As are the mystery iris I also planted last year that someone gave me – I didn’t know what color they were.

I sense a theme. Funny that it was totally random on my part.

    I love those little violas. I never plant them anymore. Remind me in October when it’s finally cool enough to have them here again…

    Pretty!! We’re not quite there – just tulips so far. And my mind went instantly to the song “Purple Kind of Day” by Laura Brino when I saw your title:

    Random seems to be a pretty theme for you 🙂 I am very partial to that iris!

  4. Still! Purple and yellow = all good. How fun that your unknown iris fit right into the grand plan you didn’t even know you had!

    You’re ahead of us in the blooming department. I love clematis and iris! Our little johnny-jump-ups are just starting to pop. Time for some sun tea on the back porch, eh?
