NOSE TO THE GRINDSTONE

i worked feverishly in the garden today, to make a small impact on my last day off.  tomorrow, it's back to the office grindstone!  my sympathies to those who have to go back to work, and to those who want jobs, but do not have them.  one joy: lookie!  this is my first sugar snap pea bloom, ever!  it reminds me of an elephant!
the rainbow chard is really bright in the sun... almost ready to pick the first leaves...
the siberian iris are blooming, this one in front of baptisia (false indigo)...
this is the entrance to the potager, with much blooming (rhodie, amsonia, weigelia and gaillardia)...
a close up of the white peony reveals many colors...
new growth on umbrella pine (sciadopitys verticillata)...
pink peony among the grasses...
nectaroscordium in front of blue hosta...
