Our darker purple irises are starting to bloom now. We've really enjoyed them this spring. It's funny how the darker irises have a totally different scent than the lighter color irises. Or maybe it's just me :0)
An update on our tree swallows. They are building a nest in the new birdhouse we put up on our porch post. The male and female have been flying in with nesting materials, plus there little bits of dried grass on the back porch.
