when we got home...

These were some of the flowers that were blooming when we got home.

I was very surprised to see that we still had irises...two years ago when we went to France at the end of May, I totally missed the blooming of all the irises and poppies. I think that because we have been having cooler weather, it's helped the lifespan of some flowers.
Oriental Poppies - these are really all one color, but when I took the picture, the sunlight made them look like they are variegated.
Roses
Dynochick calls this Purple Pavement
RhodieSalvia meadow sage ‘east friesland’
Can anyone tell me what the name of this is? It will have some pinky-purpley flowers.  (Update: this is some sort of Sedum).

I think the last photo is of sedum but I don't know which variety. I have some very similar but with yellow flowers.

Love the irises. I was just given some free yellow irises and I hope they survive the transplant.
