Rain and cool weather.......




I read a article a few years ago in a garden magazine about a couple who had an iris farm in Colorado.  After seeing the iris do so well in cool, wet weather, I can see how that farm could grow iris so well.

The superstition iris at top all opened blooms the same time overnight Saturday night.  The iris below is the one I showed you the day before and it too came out in the cool, windy and rainy night.  The camera again made this flower a little more red than is shows.

Have a good day.............

I love irises. The only ones I have blooming right now have normal sized flowers, but the stems and leaves are very short. I've never seen the red kind you have.

I have always loved irises too. I've had white, yellow and lavender. I just noticed your nice coffee mug for the week. I like that a lot.

Larry, I only had one iris plant bloom this year and am not sure what happened to the ones I had blooming last year. Either they will be very late or somehow died. But the day lillies are just coming out and by nest week we will have many in bloom. But I do wish the irises re-bloom.

We don't have any irises in our yard, but we can certainly enjoy the irises in yours and Della's, Larry. Thanks for sharing!
