Pictures of my garden

I thought I'd share a few photos and ask some opinions about what to do next. Also, I wanted to share some of my garden. Because I'm in Sunny SoCal, we have an accelerated spring (so, my jasmine is fading already) and I can share some of the great color we've gotten! Here's My Lavender -- which I adore and plant everywhere possible Tea Tree...which is an excellent corner shrub. Long blooming, drought resistant. I'm having some difficulty getting my Iris to bloom...the grow leaves every year, but have never blossomed. Anyone know what might be wrong? I'd hate to have to dig them up, but I'd really like to use the space productively. Thanks! Michelle
