Blooming amid the Pollen

It rained almost all weekend, and we are so thankful. There is so much pollen everywhere. It needed to be washed off. Like everything else, the pollen came late this year. In our area it coats everything with a thick yellow-green powder. Many ( non-local) people report a forest fire when the clouds of pollen start to blow. It's that thick.
Before the rain started Saturday, I took some photos of what is blooming in the yard.
Bleeding Hearts

Bearded Iris (And strawberries behind that!)
Not Sure what this is - it gets black pods. A garden sharing gift!

Cat Mint - Blooming in spite of the fact that three cats roll in it daily!


Bridal Veil (?)

Lily of the Valley


Coral Bell
