First of all - I just wanted to give a big shout out and thanks to Kristin at Favorite Paint Colors blog

She posted about my Living Room yesterday!  So Thanks Kristin!  It is people like her that make this blogging community so great.  You should check out her blog- it is full of inspiration from everyday people.  You know when you see a room and were wondering what colour it was painted-well she lists the paint that was used in that particular room.  Not only that, but other people can then hop on over to that persons blog to check out stuff.  What a great idea!!  So go on over and check Kristin out-you won't be dissapointed!!

It seems that everything is blooming slightly early.  And the heat today and tomorrow is really going to push my Siberiam Iris' to the max.  They won't last long.  But when they do bloom they are gorgeous.  They are the most gorgeous purple ever!!

Doesn't nature just rock??  That purple and blue!  It is redonkulous!!

Gloxinia- Pratt and Lambert

I also have the most amazing Poppies this year.  I planted them 3 years ago. And like any perennial it takes a few years for them to really establish.  And boy have they delivered this year!!

Flame- Pratt and Lambert

This Poppy looks like it is on fire-  It is the most beautiful Orangey Red.

Deep Cerise- Pratt and Lambert

This Poppy is a gorgeous deep pink.
They look as if they are made with the most delicate crepe paper ever.  You know what I mean when I say crepe paper??  Like the paper that streamers are made of.  The center of the poppies is and amazing purpley brown. 

Kalamata Olive- Martha Stewart MSL 195

I'm in love!  Can you tell??

Have a great day everyone.
