Iris are blooming, May 19, 2017

Here are some current photos – from the past few days. Our Iris are getting going about 3 weeks later than when they bloomed last year.  It has been a very wet spring and much cooler than last year.

I really enjoy the variety of color, texture and height of the Iris family of plants.  Each summer, after they are done blooming, I’ve been moving a few of them to new locations to make sure they look good with their neighbor flowers and colors.  We have quite a few lupine, columbine and poppy plants that I’m mixing in.  Gardening- – what a fun hobby!!

Happy Spring!!

Iris preview, April 14, 2016

1 Iris preview (5)

This week I’m enjoying the Iris preview before all the blooms.  We’re making good progress on the battle with the weeds, in the front gardens at least.  And, we haven’t had too many slugs yet.  The flower stalks are growing a little each day and starting to show their color.  So far the plants look like they are doing really well and we’ll have a bonus crop of blooms this year, and a wonderful Iris Festival!  Happy Spring and many blooms to you all!!
