We’re thinking about iris

 

It is that time of year here.

This is the group by the door which has never done this well.

And this is…

the group that Richard and I dug up 2 years ago to make way for my daffodils near the house,  We divided what we dug up, half for me and half for him.  He helped me roto-till this bed below my garden and we moved them there. 

I think they like it there.  What do you think?  Keep in mind, I do nothing to this bed.  Whatever fertilizer and water they get washes down from the flower bed above.  I weed, maybe once or twice a year.  That’s it.  

even more iris 009

 

The line below this picture was going to be

‘Why be purple when you can be red?’….

 

even more iris 011

 

even more iris 012

 

And that would have been true until the rest of the red tribe showed up.

 

even more iris 036

 

I have no idea where all these red iris came from.  We didn’t have them last year.

 

If you are headed to Florence this month, there is a large iris garden which is open to the public near Piazza Michelangelo.
