Pictures of flowers from my yard

I love spring and the flowers they bring. Here are some flowers from my yard. 
Brent gave me this lovely hanging basket for our anniversary, May 1st

I won this Clematis at a local green house. I got a charming trellis for it to grow on. 

A dear friend moved to Maryland and gave me this.   I could kick myself because I can't remember what she told me it was. Do you know? 

Here another view of the basket. He picked the prettiest basket at Fred Meyer.

I need to weed the flower bed more but flowers are already emerging. 

I have been trying to grow irises for years.  Finally this year, I have some. This is my first. The colors in the photo aren't really true but beautiful. I am excited for others to appear in the next few days. One of the colors I planted is a wonderful root beer color I got from the same friend that moved to Maryland. 

Nature is more wonderful and creative than I will ever be.
