ABC Wednesday: I is for Iris

I probably won't have any iris in bloom until May. I took these shot in May of last year.
I have a lot of different varieties of iris but I particularly like these dutch iris. They are somewhat irregular and show signs of being past their prime but I cannot deny that so am I.

Beautiful, brilliant shades. Can't wait for spring to arrive here in the frozen tundra!

Lovely photos, - you have shown the iris beautifully, - the shapes, the colours. I have been out to see if the corms are sending out any green swords, and look forward to May and the brilliance of the iris and the poppies together.

I have a few irises in my garden and every year I take photos of them budding, in their glory, and as they fade. One of my faves! Have a great week,

Love irises and their beautiful velvety throats.
These don't look "past their prime" and I don't think you are either.

My single iris blooms with a pinky/purple hue - your yellow one is a WOW - I may need to find a similar shade. Gorgeous photos!

Joy said...

Such pretty flowers, and an infinite variety, one could never tire of them.

I love Iris'. Mine won't be blooming for a month or two yet. It's still to cold here for them.

Irises are among my favourite flowers! I looove them!

They don't do well in my garden for some reason, but every little while I plant some anyway. My personal favourites are the blue/purple ones, especially those with yellow in them.

My irises are climbing out of the ground. Hurray!

Your irises were beautiful and your photos so gorgeous. I planted irises in baskets for this first time this year. I can hardly wait for them to bloom.

So lovely! The Great White North is But the temperature is spring-like so maybe some crocuses will bloom soon. :)
