asparagus and iris with ligularia leaf

What a gorgeous day! I'm posting this from the front porch of cabin at Flower Camp where a blue-gray gnatcatcher is flitting around in the dogwood, a breeze is keeping the temperature right around perfect, and the sun catching the treetops across the river is making them luminous.Amazing. But back to the subject at hand: the two most interesting things in the garden today were this deep purple, early-blooming iris and asparagus shoots. I combined them in a bottle then decided they needed an anchor, so I added a ligularia leaf. The colors are prettier, and more subtle, than they appear in the photograph.
