Despite the crisp morning and the frost the flowers are really bursting forth here at Greenberry House. I put out the orange roving to dry and then made a circuit of the flower beds. The bleeding heart is up already, with the elegant patterned leaves looking like lace against the rhododendron. Lilies are shooting up, along with lots of iris. I love iris and there is some in every bed around the house, including some nice colors Chris of Woolybuns gave me. The autumn joy is showing as a fat pillow against the earth and the hostas are spearing out of the ground in the window garden. There's just a hint of color in the quince bush and some buds on the viburnum. I'm even glad to greet the occasional dandelion, although I know that soon they will cover the ground. Dandelion is good for rabbits, a good excuse not to worry over them! There is a tiny blue wildflower out in the fields, low on the ground in the fresh green grass.
