May 2021 Lawn, phlox, and iris

I cut the lawn over the weekend and did both the front and the back. This is my first full round of the season. I did the front a couple of weeks ago for the first time and the back just a week ago. Now I will be onto the schedule of cutting it probably every week or ten days.

The phlox and this iris are both opening nicely. These phlox are early, compared at least to my other ones that are pink and the long blooming white ones. Since these are so early, I have cut them back in different ways in the last couple of years attempting to get them to bloom again later in the season but they don’t want to. I suppose they wouldn’t have enough sun in this part of the bed, since the mulberry tree shades that once its leaves are out.

These iris are in a nice sunny bed and the allium next to them are about to start.

And then of course pictures of tulips and pictures of cats….
