Mystery Rock Garden Flower

There was great interest in this rock garden flower. Most people felt it was
a sedum or stonecrop. The best fit is Sedum sarmentosum also called 
stringy stonecrop, gold moss, yellow moss, star sedum and graveyard moss.
     "Yellow with stonecrop the 
      moss mounds are yellow."
      George Meredith  1828-1909

Flower for the Day Rock Garden at the Lake House 5-28

Two years ago in the fall I put more than a pound of seeds into this rock garden at the Lake House. Last year there were almost no flowers. This year finally there are flowers blooming in abundance.

So far the most frequent bloomer is Coreopsis.

In the rocks there are stands of this small yellow flower.

Can anyone name this little beauty?

Don's Blog April

Changeable April Weather:  from "Two Tramps in Mudtime" by Robert Frost.

   The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
   You know how it is with an April day
   When the sun is out and the wind is still,
   You're one month on in the middle of May.
   But if you so much as dare to speak,
   A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
   A wind comes off a frozen peak,
   And you're two months back in the middle of March.

Flower for the Day Iris 5-27

The iris are winding down. I am proud of this one as I have been trying to grow orange iris and this one is in its second year.
