My kitchen window


This is the view out my kitchen window. The iris are really doing well this year. The first year we moved here, I found them growing in a pile of dirt that the previous owner had dumped under the pine trees. So I potted them and babied them for a summer and then planted them here. They've bloomed the last two years, but not like this. I just wish they lasted longer. Show me the view out your kitchen window.....I want to hear from Judith, Liz, EFB (even though it's an eating in Brooklyn blog), Susie Sunshine, and anyone else that wants to participate.

I kind of have a view out my kitchen window today (the post I have is from the inside due to weather)...can you let me pick up all the stuff that has blown around with the never ending rainstorm we are having before I take a better photo? I evacuated the garden last week and left everything as is--it's an embarassing mess, but I will gladly show you the view(s) out the kitchen window. Yours is super! I can't believe your beautiful irises are blooming away already. I want to know your iris secret.

I suppose I can wait until you clean up a little. Are you flooding where you are? I heard that you guys were getting torrential rain. I don't have an iris secret. I've never grown them before. I just planted them and they seemed happy, especially this year. I think I will have to divide at least two clumps in the fall.

I like your view, and can't wait until my plants are in bloom. I put a shot I took out my kitchen window on my site for today. Also, a shot of the kitchen window.

I can definitely do this, but probably after it stops POURING. It's not as bad here as in other parts of New England (no flooding), but it's pretty dreary.

Your irises are gorgeous!

well, brooklyn kitchen window is a bit of a mess right now. there are a few containers with plants. i describe: 2 huge boston ferns awaiting for the pansies to die so they can be potted in the front of the house by the doors. 3 empty trays which we got from the botanical garden with flowers, but they didnt' fit out windows, so we just used the flowers. they will now have herbs in them (lettuces and things like that, once i get to plant them)
a lady mantle passion vine which is just now making its way out of the house. 2 baby grape vines, a blue spiked issop, 4 veronicas (white and pink), 4 butterfly bushes (pink and purble) a new orleans jasmin and a mauve climatis. then there is the table with 4 chairs and lots of soil all over the ground. oh yeah 2 pots with roses, climatises, arugula, beets and honey suckle in them. could be paradise or it could be a disaster. we ll see what happens in that garden.

Lady mantle passion vine? Cool. I'll have to look that up. And jasmine? Awesome. I love the smell of jasmine, especially on humid nights.
