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.
