You have quite the green thumb there Sheriff!
Very Pretty. I love Iris'. I have white, lavender and burgundy ones. Then, this year in the middle of my burgundy ones a yellow appeared? WTF, I don't know where it came from. It was really pretty though in the middle of all that deep burgundy it really stuck out!

Got news fer you Lee - all the really pretty ones (late bloomers) - multy coloured real tall iris, are 'temporarily' in the back yard - You ain't seen nothin yet - Got at least half a dozen other varieties left ta show!

Oh & I moved the mini dwarf iris today ... there were a dozen roots - should be a really fine show next year (only got two flowers a those this year!)

These are 'sea thrift' - small plants (6 inches) and thumb nail size flowers - in the newer flowerbed

Let's just say that Bryan's planned it well so's there's always sumthin new bloomin out there, until mid July. But ours is really the only garden with this much variety within a mile.

Mimma's constantly wanting fer me ta share this plant or that one ... specially this year!
