Even though our Roses are blooming now, I don't want to neglect all of our 34 varieties of IRISES we had blooming in our yard between 4/15 and now (6/4) since a few of them are still blooming! Most bloomed by the 20th of May! SO---I made some collages and am sharing all of them in one Blog post. Only one bloomed AFTER I made the collages--and that is of course a special one since its name is TENNESSEE VOL. I included that one near the bottom of the post!
I won't take time to put all of the names on this post --but if you find one you especially like, just ask and I'll send you the name... I featured 6 pictures at the bottom --which are favorites of mine. Hope you enjoy seeing our IRISES for 2021... Hopefully some of them, including ones which haven't bloomed yet, will re-bloom in the Fall.
|This was a favorite of mine this Spring. Her name is CONCERTINA and she bloomed and bloomed!!!!|
|Here is TENNESSEE VOL. This was the last one to bloom this spring, and bloomed AFTER I made the Collages... However, since I am a Tennessee Vol, this one is a favorite.|
|This Iris has been a favorite for several years due to the 'frilly' look she has... Her name is ORANGE HARVEST.|
|This is one of our new IRISES named PICASO MOON. I love that gorgeous bright yellow color.|
|We had this one last year, but it didn't bloom until now... WOW--it was worth waiting for, don't you think? The name is PAPRIKA FONO'S ---and is definitely one of my newer favorites. |
|And the WINNER (for me) again this year is BOUNTIFUL HARVEST!!! I wish all of you could see this one in bloom. Such an amazing beauty!!!!!|
I hope you enjoyed seeing our IRISES. These plants/flowers can bring a lot of color to one's yard --and they take very little care. They just do their own thing --and come back year after year. The only thing we have to do is to separate them on occasion--when they spread out TOO much!!!!
And for us living here in the woods, the DEER do not like Irises ---so we gradually have added more Irises and less Tulips (which the deer love)....
Hope you have a very good JUNE.... We have been so cool here these past few months --but they say that we are supposed to have a VERY HOT summer.... The Roses, Lilies and Day Lilies LOVE the heat, but ME? Not so much!!!!!
My question to you: Do you have a favorite (or favorites) from this group?
