Friday Flowers: Iris


One of Mom's favorite spring flowers is the Iris. She loves the purple ones the best. They've taken a beating lately with the rain and she wasn't sure she'd even get a shot of a yellow Iris before they were completely gone. She thought she had one ready to take last week, the rain hit and it was gone before she even had a chance to capture a picture of it.


Mom is hoping to get a weekend soon with good weeding weather that she and Dog Dad can get out and attack the weeds. When the weather has been good, they've had other commitments. When they've had the time, its been wet and rainy.


We like it when the parents come out to garden because we can usually distract them with a ball. Then we cool off under the Hostas while we supervise them working.

  4. Pawsome Iris. Ours doesn't want to bloom. Mommy was thinking of moving it to a different spot.

    1. Mom had to move some when she split them for the first time and some of the relocated ones didn't like their new homes. She found them new locations and they were happier.

  5. Your Irises are STUNNING. NO Orchid can begin to compare to an Iris. They are not only Colorful they are so ORNATE.

  7. You have living flowers in your garden? We strongly suggest you don't let our Jan near it! She has a black thumb and it might be contagious.

  11. I love irises too....mine aren't opening yet though. My dogs also love to get a ball out when I'm working in the gardens, and then supervise as well!
