Our house is surrounded by plants and flowers. Here are some of the things blooming in our yard right now. These are Iris pseudacorus, the yellow flag iris. They've naturalized themselves around the pond.
The red trumpets are Hippeastrum x johnsonii, St. Joseph's Lily. These were here when we bought the property, and they had been blooming here for years unattended.
This Iris is called "Lady Friend", with Weigela in the background.
This old rose is a mystery. I received it in a swap several years ago. Does anyone know what it might be? It has bluish-purple undertones. MaryAnn wrote and gave a link to a rose that looks similar. Maybe this could be 'Alfred Colomb.' Check out the Antique Rose Emporium's photo
