What I Look Forward to in Spring

I look forward to these irises blooming.  They are a gorgeous shade of purple which unfortunately I've not been able to capture yet.  They look a little faded in these pictures.  Note to self:  learn how to photograph flowers correctly.

I also love the old-fashioned mock orange shrub.  It smells heavenly.  It's gotten big and rangey because I enjoy having so many flowers on it to smell but I'll trim it back.  It's blocking light to the white peony next to it.  I'm getting better at pruning.  When I first moved here I scalped many a shrub.
