Friday Flowers: Iris

Welcome back to Friday Flowers. If you have been a regular visitor, you may know about Mom's Iris obsession interest. She was very excited she had a chance to capture the darker yellow Iris before the rains came. Surprisingly they seem to have thrived after the storm, but previous waits have taught her to take the shot or wait another year.

One of the things Mom has really liked about writing the Friday Flowers spot each week is that it has inspired her to go out and capture pictures of her garden flowers. In the past flowers would come and go and Mom would never think to capture an image. Now each week she has a reminder to go find some pictures. Come winter when it’s cold and dark she'll have all her Friday Flowers images to revisit.

As you can see, we are always out supervising the shots. You never know when Mom or Dog Dad can get into trouble. These humans can create all kinds of challenges for themselves. They need us to watch out for them.

Recently Mom saw some peach and pale lavender colors. I can see that mind trying to figure out where to squeeze in more. I think she has to rehome some before she can get new ones.

While she loves the big majestic Iris blooms, Mama has a special place in her heart for these little ones. They were a gift from the garden of someone no longer alive. It is like having a part of them still with us.


  1. The iris is one of the prettiest flowers we think and we have yellow ones down by one of our ponds in the park and they look great. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. I think a friday flower post would force me to be more attentive to maintain the garden too!! Glad it helps you enjoy your garden better! If only I have the same motivation... :P

  7. So pretty! That's a great idea to take photos now to enjoy the flowers later, especially when it gets all cold and snowy!

  12. I have a lot of irises but they don't bloom! What am I doing wrong? They come up but only a couple of them flower. : ( I have some spider lilies from my father-in-laws yard. They make me smile and remember him each fall! Your garden is stunning!

  13. Love those yellow irises. So colorful and bright.

  14. We Love Irises!! Yours are so pretty...just like butterflies taking flight!
