|Back at Aitken's Salmon Creek Garden|
The Japanese Iris are at full bloom just now .
|The clumps are huge , so are the size of the blooms . It isn't so easy to get in to weed these days.|
|Two hours of removing spent blooms ...|
|...I 'll have this full soon enough .|
|Heres Terry taking photos as well .|
|I took possession of a nice freshly plowed row . No Iris , just my spare Annuals I grew this year from seed.|

|The pond and all the poppies that survived my daily plucking out. The one surviving very big gold fish survived another attack .|
|This one ! I was greeted by big flapping wings making a get away the other morning .|
A Great Blue Heron ?

|Since I removed most of the planting under the Plum tree , this has become my favorite part of the garden . I still need to move a few things , but I love the mass of Millet grass , it self seeds like crazy ! But easily pulls out .|
|A. sciulum bularicum : Nectaroscordum siculum ssp ...phew |
Has been getting about nicely. And I can see lots of poppies in the background.
|Styrax japonica 'evening light' with the sprays of Bowles effusm aureum or Bowles golden grass or Golden Millet grass ...|

|Another bloom day post from Aitken's Salmon Creek Garden . It is Iris season after all , and last month I only had the miniatures to show.|
|Once again I haven't taken note of the names . And they are in no kind of order. I just snapped away this morning .|
|Here is Terry ..six feet away . And his beautiful home . He was an architect before starting his Iris and Orchid farm.|
|Happy Bloom Day|
