Our Yard has been filled with many Bearded IRISES this Spring

Dear Blog Friends,  If have follow me on Facebook,  you know about all of the beautiful IRISES we have had in our yard this past month.  We've had IRISES for many years,  but this year has been that absolute best.  I guess it's because of our strange Spring this year (cool/cold and rainy)...Whatever ---I absolutely love them!!!  

I have two posts to share.  First are the 'groups' showing just a few of some of each kind we have had.  THEN--next week,  I'll share some of my favorite individual Irises.   Hope you love them as much as I do.

Aren't they just gorgeous?   I hope you enjoyed just a FEW of our IRISES today.   Tune back in next week for some individual beauties!!!!!

I had Carpal Tunnel Surgery on May 5 on my right hand.  After our car accident in August,  when I broke my right wrist,  I've had so much trouble with my fingers and thumb being numb on that hand.  The surgery went well --so I'll just have to wait and see if it will help!!!!

Have an awesome week, my Friends.

All of your pictures are absolutely beautiful! (The iris are beautiful too!!)

Hope your recovery is easy and corrects the issue. By the way if George is every dividing any of those irises I'd be happy to have a rhizome or two. I'll repay you the postage too.

The closeup of the Iris, especially the yellow one is really beautiful. Nature is great, if we have time to pause and observe.

Big Dude said...

Your irises always look magnificent. I was hoping you were following our NC trip. I really like that area.
