Lots of bloom

My garden is a riot of color now with the Pacific Coast Hybrid Iris winding 
down, the Spurias opening, a few Louisiana Iris opening, and hundreds of 
different  bearded iris in bloom.  The narcissus 'phesants eye' is strarting to 
open, just a few of hundreds.  The most fascinating thing is the Agave called 
'Century Plant'.  A week ago Sunday evening my husband and I both noticed that the 
top of it looked different.  In 1 week it has sent up a stalk 8' tall.  It 
looks like an asparagus stalk on steroids.  At this rate of speed we expect it 
will bloom in about 2 weeks.  You can watch it grow.
Lots of beautiful rose bloom, alstromeria, lavender and other stuff.  
Unfortunately still to many weeds.  
The garden is open to the public from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.  If any 
of you are going to be in the area, please come by.
