On High Spring and Tailoring

Peony from front bed
High spring, the time of peonies, irises, and roses.  The flower bed in the front yard is finally blooming, after a number of years of mulling and last year's work of weeding and planting.
Siberian iris
My two little clumps of Siberian iris are blooming, and I realize I love these guys - what have I been doing with those bearded irises all these years?  In this bed of buxom peonies the tailored Siberians perform the same function as a structured jacket does for a plump woman: they hold it all together.
