Some People Buy Iris
This is Amy's iris. She had never seen it bloom where it was growing before, and it took several years for it to bloom here.
This tall iris was also a gift from Jane. We have been waiting for this one to bloom and we were not disappointed.
This apricot iris came from Liz. It bloomed beautifully this year. The large frilly blossoms tend to snap their stems when the flowers get wet and this year they have been wet!.
This sunny yellow iris also came from Joann. It does very well here.
The white , yellow, lavender, apricot and mother's iris will all need resetting this year. Perhaps I can find a friend to pass some of them along to. As I said, I don't buy iris, but sometimes I trade or give them to friends.
Of course I don't mean Siberian iris or Japanese iris or Dutch iris or that iris with the variegated leaves, but you know Iris!
