    The Louisiana irises above are planted in the ditch in our right-of-way. They are putting on a stunning show for the next few weeks. Unfortunately I couldn’t find the tags to identify them, they are either buried under the grass and debris below the irises or have floated away when water was in the ditch. I’m pretty sure I wrote about them last year either here or on Sprout Dispatch, so somewhere there’s names for them.

    Down at the pond are several species Iris virginica that we planted. I found a couple plants that were hiding in overgrown grass that we need to thin out to make room for the irises to divide and expand over the years, but this one was out and in full blooming glory for me.

    I love irises, they are one of my favorite flowers. It’s too bad they don’t bloom all summer!

      Nan would be so proud to know you are growing these! She loved iris’s so much, just as much as roses.
