Please tell me that this was a photo taken a while ago because the weather here has been so bad that all of my plants have given up!
Oh well...

Beautiful"I" post! I love Irises, and I don't have any. I must plant some for next year.

I really like Iris's, I posted them last time for I so couldn't use them again. I like the frilly ones.

Love your irises. So delicate yet bold and vibrant. I wonder if they would fit in my shady wildflower garden. Probably not. Oh well.

Rose said...

Great photos! I especially love the variegated one from your mum's garden. They surely aren't blooming now, though, are they?

Kim from Hiraeth said...

Irises are so beautiful! Those potted ones are fascinating! I've never seen any like that!

Rebeckah said...

So pretty : )! I knew a beautiful older lady named Kay who LOVED these flowers. They were her favorite. Thanks for the nice memories!

Mean Mom said...

Lovely iris photographs! They are such beautiful flowers. I've been trying to make up my own cross stitch chart for an iris. It's been very difficult, but I think I've just about managed it. All I have to do, now, is stitch it!

Read your last post, too. Watch out! Little sprog is going to be a wow with the girls, when he's a bit older!

Hi Rose and Jamjarsuperstar, no I took these Iris pictures much earlier on in the season.

Kim, the potted ones are an alpine variety.

Mean mom, it sounds very difficult to design your own but it will be beautiful when you've done it. A photo of the complete thing maybe?
