There wasn't much sun this weekend, but the temps were in the low 70's with a constant breeze.
The Potager is starting to take off! Cabbage, Asian Greens, lettuce escarole and Swiss chard seem to get bigger everytime I look at them. The carrots even decided to grow a little.

More lettuce was planted, this 'Ruby' and 'Gentilina' lettuce will help hide the ripening tulip foliage.
The bearded iris continue to delight the eye.
|A clump of an ancient iris that I rescued from underneath a lilac the first year I moved here.|
|'Amethyst Flame' this was one of the first Iris I bought in the early 70's. I'll always have a soft spot for it. It won the Dykes Medal, irisdom's highest honor the year I was born, 1963.|
