My Iris are Blooming!

My Iris are Blooming!  I love the mix of colors in this clump of the old, established plants.

Established Iris - White, Blue, and Dark Purple

Here is one of the new ones, a gorgeous purple and white.  Too bad it’s been eaten up by the snails, there’s a million of them in the garden.

I love this new yellow and orange, especially the neon orange beard.

Here is another new purple one, this is a light mauve with darker purple and white.

We still have several clumps of the ugly brown iris to dig out, but I think it doesn’t look all that bad in this picture.  But it’s still getting dug up!

About sunflowerswank

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.
