Wonders of spring

The yard is full of surprises this year.

This peach colored iris is a nice change from the usual purple and yellow we have seen so far.
There is also now a red rose by the old apple tree that I had found smothered under the vinca.

We have a white rose on the fence.  The bush has never bloomed in the 2 years we have been here.  I started singing "Painting the roses red" from Disney's Alice in Wonderland as soon as I saw it.

 But by a landslide this is the best surprise so far: 

We didn't even know we had a peach tree.  This is the first year it bloomed.  I guess clearing out the weeds and pruning most of the dead branches was a good idea.  Now we just have to get a ladder up and thin the small fruit.
