Iris in Bloom...

Springtime has come to East Tennessee and all around us nature is coming alive and showing many beautiful colors.  I love this time of year but there is a lot of work involved and it seems each year it takes longer and longer to get it all done!




Out of all the flowers and all the colors, I think the lovely Iris is my most favorite. Blooming in Spring they sport many beautiful colors and a wonderful fragrance to delight your senses.  These are the first blooms to come forth and I'm so happy to see their lacy beards!  Everywhere I go where there are Iris growing, I'm always begging for a little root to get a start.  

That's it for me this morning.  I hope you get to spend time today doing what you love!

Glenda, I love your pink Iris! I don't have any that color but I think they are my favorite flowers. My pale purple are the only ones to bloom so far so I am waiting for the others. Your's look beautiful along your white picket fence!!

Ohhhh, your irises look so pretty against the white picket fence! I don't have enough sunny garden space left to grow irises so my spring bloom-o-rama comes from the azaleas. Bet passersby just love stopping to look at your garden. Such a pretty sight! I'm so glad you shared these photos, Glenda!
