|my little collection of bearded irises|
I've been enjoying the irises here! They are lovely this year and now all the colours that I have are in bloom. My small collection has four solid coloured irises (white, blackish purple, light mauve, and light blue). I also have three different bi-colour irises (variations of purple and white).
I have no idea of the varieties, as they were all gifts from my dear friend, Rita. The purple and white one, that is shown second from the top, was given to Rita by the woman who got her iris collection started over forty-five years ago.
Above is my very favourite iris, because it is from my mother-in-law's garden. These are the very first ones to come into bloom each June.
Until next time, happy gardening.
