Vicki..your flowers are beautiful!We call those purple Iris, Louisiana Iris down here. When I lived in Tennessee, they were called Japanese Iris.Do you know the correct name?I hope your Roses root. I forgot to tell you the small stem one is a Tropicana,which is a deep coral color, the other two are JC. ~ Carol ~
Hey, Carol -- That particular iris is a Siberian iris -- I have some Louisiana irises down at our pond and they are bigger. Also I have some Japanese irises which have broader foliage and bigger falls (petals.) Still, they're all pretty similar, especially seen in close up.Thanks for the info on the roses -- so far, so good!
Vicki - LOVE this post!!!! I'm a fan of Haiku, and this brings forth a perfect visual - the photos are an added bonus.It's going to be interesting to see what we have blooming when we get back home on Saturday!
Each rising sun lightsNew waked beauties -- peonies,..Columbines ... roses...
Glorious pics and haiku! My yard is calling this weary weeder, too. It was so much fun seeing you over at Carol's blog, by the way. :^)
Hey, Willow, -- After all this rain, the weeds are trying to take over. I've been hoeing the garden, trying to bet them back.Carol posted a much fuller account of the weekend than I did -- really nicely done. And as you said, you didn't have to go through Hotlanta!
I shall never look at an iris again without thinking of your tiger lurking there! The garden scene with the blue bench is so soothing, I wished I could sit down and let it all embrace me. Thank you for sharing all this beauty with us!
Thank you, Merisi! And thank you for my little trips to Vienna over on your blog. I love your photos!
