I was away for the weekend and came home to amazing colours in the garden. These beautiful Irises were hidden in the garden. I'd meant to dig them up last year and replant them, as they were originally planted a little too deep and rarely bloomed. Obviously some chicken scratching and dustbathing has helped a lot this year.
Another flower which needs thinning are the Poppies. There are now scads of orange Poppies. I'd really like some other types and colours. There are some pink and varigated pink Oriental Poppies which would make a nice addition. The Icelandic Poppies I planted last year don't seem to have made it through the winter, nor have several other plants. Whether that's due to the lack of snow cover or the chickens, I don't know.
