Blackberry lillies, dahlia, & the harvest starts!

This is right outside the gate leading into the backyard.  The blackberry lillies, which barely topped 12″ last year, reach 5′ this year (& still growing!)  I really need to move them to the back of the bed because they’re so tall.

The leaves (fronds?) of the blackberry lillies remind me of palms.  The plants are flat and just fan out.The blooms are beautiful and delicate.

My first dahlia bloom of the year!This is my first jalapeño harvest…it’s massive!
