Friday's Flowers - Iris in the Garden

The Iris are still blooming in the garden.
So easy to grow on my sandy soil.

A beautiful Iris sibirica (Seberian Iris)

My favourite Yellow Iris, given to me from a fellow Master Gardener.
 It can be a fussy bloomer, some years it has lovely full blooms and the next no blooms at all.
 But it is well worth the wait.

A very pale pink iris has been flowering for over a week. 
The weather has turn frigid, again, so I am hopeful they will continue to bloom
for the rest of the week.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and
thank you for stopping in for a visit.
Take care!

We haven't had much luck with irises here, but I keep on trying. I love your pale pink one - so delicate.

The iris are beautiful. We have one just about to open at Jack's house. I hope I can get a picture.

Has been quite hot here! Hotter than Florida but hopefully will cool down soon.

Oh those are lovely - some of my favorite flowers. With our cold spring mine have not even shown buds yet - I think everything is going to bloom in October.

We had iris flowers on our farm here in Ontario Canada...i grew up loving to watch them slowly open up more and more one day at a time!

I'm your newest follower, stop in to visit if you wish.

Ciao Bella!

Hi Jen
My irises should open any day now. You have some beautiful colours that have been photographed with your usual expertise.

Oh My Jen! Those are exquisite shots. The colors are so beautiful. Now that my move is over, and I'm almost unpacked, I want to go out with my camera into my new surroundings to see what I can find. It's good to be back to your beautiful blog again. ♥

You took my breath away! They are beautiful. I love the colors. The white and yellow one is my favorite. It is perfect. Thanks for sharing.

What a variety of irises! How beautiful, I think the yellow is my favorite, but I love all the detail on the others too.

Beautiful iris. I wish they lasted longer. Mine are just about finished now.
