Beautiful first bloom of the year for my pseudacorus.
Many years ago, when I was first given the start of this plant, my friend called it by its botanical name. You may know it as "yellow flag". It is listed as an invasive plant, but I have been very careful with it. I use it as a wind break for other flowers.

Yesterday, It was just too muddy to be working in either the vegetable or the flower gardens.
Despite the sign....it is not easy to keep the mud out of the back entrance.
There is a good reason why it is call Blackland...the earth, here, is very black and sticky when it is wet. My shoes had mud stuck to the bottoms and the rug now needs a good washing. That's the bad news.
The good news is this beautiful Blackland Prairie will grow almost anything.....
