A Second Look--Part II

Yesterday, I showed you some of the bird activity and today I'm going to show you a few of the flowers that are blooming. Things are changing so fast this time of year, it feels like I shouldn't go two weeks before I show you what things look like now in the plant world. And oh, it's still raining. However, now the rainy periods are interspersed with just cloudiness. :)

Here are a few things I saw this week
 during a Second Look.

The first Japanese Iris to bloom this year.


Peris japonica. This one is about a month behind the one directly across the walk from it.

The bleeding heart are still blooming.

Lily of the Valley

Azalea. Others are just budding.
