Siberian (uniquely exotic and beautiful)

A royal color, purple reigns in gardens during this time of the year.  Today’s photos, all taken yesterday in or around my yard prove it.  I know, I’ve already posted a photo of an iris.  But at the risk of boring those of you who don’t like flowers as much as I do, I’m posting more here today.  Here are several varieties that are currently brightening my days and my landscape.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!   afs
