Sunday Best~Shot/s of the Week

We had frost this week, but 2 tall trees protected one little flower down by the creek so it could bloom. 
 I'm really enJOYing this carpet of purple down on the creek side.  Whatever this plant is, which may be a weed to some people, I do like it because it keeps other weeds and grasses at bay and doesn't get any taller than this during the summer so it doesn't have to be mowed.  It's growing well in shaded areas.

It seems the majority of flower color right now is purple.

  2. Irises are my favorite flowers. We still have two months to wait for them to bloom. Nice pictures!

    1. We also are supposed to have had Irises 2 months from now but we broke the record with the warmest March ever. Having to pull weeds out of the way to sew seeds. Unreal and so unnatural.
