This is a photo of my iris bed when it first began to bloom this year. We have expanded it another 6 feet on the other end. Once the bloom is finished we will split and transplant some of these. The iris is my favorite flower and is truly a "fancy lady"...I think I have every color under the sun. Some are rebloomers and will bloom again in the autumn if we don't get the heat and drought like we have had the past few years. Then some are hybrids and others are the old antique varieties. Some even traveled from house to house whenever we would move..and some of these came originally from my grandmother who also transplanted them from place to place in her life time. It makes be feel so blest to know I have something that once came from her original plants. If you want to see more and better photos go to my gnomes home blog to view. gnomes-home.blogspot.com
