I could really get into these tall bearded irises.

Here's another one opened today.

I'm seriously getting a big liking for irises.

Rachel you seem to have the technique for irises.

Beautiful.  Do you have them in a damp spot?

Moya Moya 24 May 2011 22:58:09

Lovely and blousey!

Rachel Rachel 24 May 2011 22:59:23

Thank you, folks. These irises like sun, Mairin, which is lucky because I don't have many damp spots.

Beautiful,is that the same one inyour album rachel?

Myrtle Myrtle 25 May 2011 09:02:25

Lovely one

It looks to be a great year for irises. My plain blue ones didn't flower much last year as I divided them the year before but it's a bumper year this year.

Tina, yes, this one is my album cover, dated 24.5.11. It is a named variety but I've lost the name and there are too many blue/white ones to work out which one it is.

My Irises from the French National Collection should be flowering soon.

Thanks, Geraldine.

Liga, yes, I want the coppery orange ones too :) But I think red irises are wrong!
