This is my second spring in Kentucky and admittedly last year I was still getting used to everything and didn't take the time to appreciate the newness that comes with the season. This year, as I have a more vested interest in having a few of my own plants, I am getting a feel for the differences in blooming times down here than what I grew up with in Connecticut. Back north I remember iris and peonies as early summer flowers, this year thanks to a very warm March they have become late summer flowers starting to show their beauty in April.
A few weeks ago I had a few moments to myself and went to the UK Arboretum and snagged a few shots of some favorite flowers. Here are the best ones :)
