Our 2010 Irises---Part II

If you didn't see Part I of our Irises, chick
HERE. Today I'm sharing the second group of our 2010 Irises in our yard. Above is another of our pretty yellow Irises. This one is named SUMMER OLYMPICS.

This pretty Iris is named ENGLISH CHARM. Isn't it pretty?

Another yellowish one; This one is named WALTZ AROUND TEXAS. I guess it's not the yellow Rose of Texas---but it may be the yellow Iris of Texas!!!!

I love the colors in this Iris. We've had this one for several years. Its name is ELECTRIC SHOCK.

This Iris is named HALLOWEEN HALO. (Wonder where they come up with all of the names???? I promise you that I'm not making them up!!!!)

All of our yellow Irises are different, one from another!!!! This one is named HARVEST OF MEMORIES.

I grew up with ALL purple Irises... My mother had a huge bed along the bank --and there were tons of the purple Irises there. This one is named STELLAR LIGHTS.

Here's one more yellow one... Its name is LEMON REFLECTION. All of our five yellow Irises are different--one from another! They are all unique and special--each in its own way!

I love this 'curly' Iris. Its name is ORANGE HARVEST.

Well---that's it!!!!! Hope I haven't bored you to death with all of our Iris varieties. I'm sure I'll do the same thing when our Lilies and Daylilies bloom ---along with all of our beautiful Roses.

Sorry I haven't visited all of your blogs the past couple of days. I spent yesterday in the doctor's office getting my left knee X-rayed . I have been experiencing ALOT of pain the past week or two, so I decided it was time to get myself to the doctor. I will get around to your blogs as I am able.

Our 2010 Irises---Part I

Remember how lucky we were this year to have so many tulips blooming?WELL--Our Irises really showed off also. We had EIGHTEEN different varieties in our yard this year. Most are gone now --so we are waiting now for the Lilies and Daylilies to bloom. I finally got my pictures together , so would like to show you one of each of our Iris varieties...Above is definitely one of my favorites since George ordered this one JUST for me. Its name is TENNESSEE VOL IRIS.... Now--isn't that special???? Below are more!!!

This beauty is named BLATANT. Don't you love the two colors?

This is FLOOR SHOW IRIS. I love the tan color on top.. That seems rare for an Iris.

This Iris is named CLARENCE. Isn't it pretty?

This Iris is named HELL'S FIRE. You should see the deep burgundy color on this one. The bottom petals are almost black depending upon the light.

Yellow Irises do well in our yard. They seem to bloom longer than some of the others. This one is named HONEY GLAZE.

This beauty is called AUTUMN BUGLER. It changes colors depending upon the sunlight. I love the color of this Iris.

This little Iris is named QUEEN DOROTHY.... I cannot understand why it isn't named QUEEN BETSY though. ha ha ha...

Finally, here's another beautiful Iris. I love its color also. Its name is CABLE CAR.

I will have nine more to share with you tomorrow. You'll have to choose your favorite ones. Most of our Irises are re-bloomers ---so hopefully, we'll see many of these again in the Fall!!!!

Hope you had a great weekend.
