Iris are in Bloom

A mishmash of “found” iris are blooming in the yard.  Some were found at the back of the property.  We moved them up to a sunnier location so they could bloom; some were gifts and some were borrowed.

I am amazed at the number of large, bearded flowers blooming.  I fully expected smaller, more common flowers.  And while I love those old time, hearty stand-bys, it’s been great fun to be surprised by these big, handsome blooms.

    1. The best time to dig these up is in the fall, and I'd be happy to split some and share!

    1. I think it would be lovely to have a mass of the same kind, too!
