Just added the “Black” flowers page. Perhaps one day I’ll put up a page about the poisonous plants I have too. The Rose page has also been updated to include the latest addition.

The Gladiolus palustris I bought last Thursday is opening its blooms now. I’ve never been fond of pink, but even I have to admit the inflorescence has its own charm. There’s enough mauve in the shade that sometimes I can tell myself it isn’t pink, it’s mauve, but who am I kidding…

The northern blue flag iris (Iris versicolor) is still blooming; it seems to be just about to end. Although it bloomed last of the three types of iris I have, it had the longest actual bloom period.
