We went for a walk to feed the fish yesterday and I found a couple new blooms. There is one pale yellow iris blooming. It was a little surprising since I have not seen it in a while.
The last few pictures I took are of a very old purple Dutch iris. The colors are very rich and crisp, but I prefer a bearded iris over this variety. The Dutch iris looks more like a lily but they bloom out flat. I like flowers with a little height to them. Still the beautiful color is welcome any time.
I am still in search for an almost black iris. Any suggestions are welcome. I am thinking of starting an iris swap. Like a seed swap but with easy to grow bulbs and tuber plants. I have loads of them starting to come up!
