As my bed of purple irises began to die out, my white irises, old-fashioned bronzes, and yellows began to bloom and really put on a colorful show.
In the background behind the white irises, my day lilies were shooting up buds on long stems. These are dark yellow trumpets.......small but beautiful.
The white irises have a small showing of yellow beards sticking out from the centers and down onto the falls.
These old-fashioned bronzes were planted here by my mother-in-law over twenty years ago. Some years they make no showing at all, but with all the rain they really came out for a great display.
This is another iris I inherited from a friend. They really brighten up the corner of the yard where they are planted. They always seem to be the last to bloom. They usually take me by surprise! I nearly forget them and then, voile! there they are! It's almost as if a light has been turned on in that corner of the yard. I have truly enjoyed this Iris Spring!
