My Iris are Blooming!

It’s  finally Spring and my Iris are blooming!  For the past 3 years we have been working on digging out all of the ugly brown iris, and planting new and pretty iris in their place.  And some of the new iris are finally getting big enough and settled in enough to bloom – yea!  We dug out 3 more clumps of the ugly brown iris this spring and I am spending way too much time deciding what new colors I want to buy to plant in the new empty spots.  Meanwhile, here are some pictures of my new, beautiful iris blossoms.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.

    My fav is the plain white with pale yellow…a rare combo! My least favorite…yep…the ugly brown iris with a short expected life span!
