Pushing the Pause Button on Spring

Iris are named after the Greek Goddess, Iris, who is named after the rainbow and iris do come in a rainbow of colors. I just wanted to share a bit of my spring with my iris this year.
This one below smells like grape juice.
Just some eye candy for your morning.
This fall begins the hours of digging and dividing, but for today it is just enjoying.

Beautiful photos

Iris are a favorite. There's an iris that I believe might be either yellow or a pale lavender that smells like pink bubble gum. It was an old iris growing in the same place for decades.

These are so stunning. I am such a failure as a gardener now that I have only a few geraniums. If I remember to water them. I used to be a really gung ho gardener.

Beautiful blooms. Won't be any here yet for awhile.

those are gorgeous. I don't think I've seen any those colors. but then I don't grow any bearded iris. maybe I should give them a try. none of my iris bloomed this year except a maroon one that bloomed for the first time.

WOW! Those are gorgeous! I don't know if I've ever seen blue iris like that before. My new favorite!

These Iris are so lovely! Hadn't recalled they could be aromatic as you describe, but haven't seen any since moving from the midwest years ago where we had them. I especially like the blue ones.

Oh my gosh, what beautiful flowers. How sweet that there are so many varieties. Gardening is just so much work here and then the darn critters eat everything. Must mean I need another trip to Trader Joe's for some cut or potted flowers.
