The Irises


The Irises are blooming. In fact, they've almost bloomed out.

It's tradition: When I see the first Iris of the year unfurl I put out this dishcloth that my sister got me when we visited the botanical gardens many years ago.
The garden:



Irises blooming and regal,
With promises made by the sun.

    1. I do love Irises.(Probably because my daughter painted them in high school:) There's such a wonderful variety of color isn't there, Lee.

  6. Your irises are far more beautiful than mine. I only have the purple ones. Yours are so much more colorful. Beautiful garden shots and that dishcloth is out of this world.

    1. I'm wondering if it's all the liquid we got this winter. My plants have either doubled or died:)

  10. I love iris's actually and your garden looks so pretty especially with that fairy angel! I had iris's but they didn't do well because I am the kiss of death when it comes to plants. My hubby, who has a green thumb, ripped them out because he is not a fan..just like my mom! I think I married my mom:)

  13. They're such elegant flowers and they last a long time in the garden. I took all of mine out last year because of some blight. I really miss them, and you've inspired me to put some fresh ones in! Thanks.
