Friday Flower Bloggin'


This yellow and tan iris came from my home in Vineland. One of the new neighbors ripped out all the irises and through them in the street. I grabbed as many as I could. I brought several from Vineland but not many bloomed this year. I have to separate them and hopefully my deep purple/black iris will bloom next year. I don't know what happened to my ice blue iris. I'll have to buy more. My neighbor, here gave me some of his irises that he thinned out. He doesn't know what color they are so I will be surprised next year. I was up early, did some wash, hung it out, and then started to paint the deck. The forecast called for rain but has been wrong for the past month. Of course, today the weatherman was right on. He claimed it would start raining at 10am and it did. At least I got the north side of the deck done. I am working around on the west side now. It has to be done in the morning as the sun moves around and it can get up to 100 degrees out there.

Your Iris is beautiful. I have a couple pf friends that have all kinds of Iris. I brought 3 with me but opeted to wait until next year before getting anymore. I need to figure where I want to put them etc. My lower beds that I can see from my living room windows were full of weeds. I finaly got most of them cleaned out but still have to do the back sides. Sure miss my camera. Will have to get another. The peonies down there are a burgandy red and a white. Have a coule of pink on the north side of the garage where only the neighbors can see them. Will move them some time this summer. So far only planting preneals.
