2014 IRISES in our Yard --Part I

ORANGE HARVEST IRIS -5-7-14
As you know,  I had Gallbladder Surgery on May 8... Everything went fine until I started having a different kind of stomach pain... After a trip to the doctor on May 13,  I have been treated for some kind of infection (unsure what)...  SO--it's been an 'interesting' week.  My first day out of the house was Wednesday, May 14--when I was able to get my hair cut and run some errands!!!!   To tell you the truth,  I am looking for a much better week this next week....I'm not one to be SICK very often --so when I am,  I am not a good patient!!! (Poor George!!! ha)

I have enjoyed our flowers in the yard these past few weeks ---so today I'll share 10 of our TWENTY different blooming Iris varieties this year.  I'll show you Part II in another blog post. Be sure to click on  these beauties for enlargements.

Hope you enjoyed our Irises today...  I love all of our flowers --but the Irises are extra-special.... AND--the chipmunks and squirrels and the deer (most of the time) don't bother them... The hardest perennial that we try to grow here are Tulips ---since the chipmunks love to dig up the bulbs thinking they are nuts!!!  Oh Well!!!!

I am taking a week off from blogging to get back on my feet and get back to things I need (and want) to be doing!!!!!  I will see you again on May 26....   Have a wonderful week!!!

Hugs,
