Art and a pink monkeyflower in a native plant garden…



Back here I talked about going to the Yerba Buena Nursery on a unique sunny day between storms. The plants we purchased have not been put in the ground yet because of all the rain (actually, the backyard is on the order of a swimming pool), but this lovely dwarf Pacific Coast Hybrid Iris “Native Warrior” is blooming in its pot. I think it is called a warrior because it is good in rock gardens and is draught tolerant. Beauty and perseverance like that needs a commemorative photo, even though the maroon color is not totally accurate since I turned the photo to sepia tone before I painted back in the spot color in Photoshop Elements.
