The Irises Are Back!

Irises Spring 2010 003My modest garden is a-burgeoning these days, and the weather’s been fine enough recently for me to spend quite a bit of time outside getting the garden in shape for another year.

For me, one of the highlights of every spring is the return of my little collection of blue Siberian irises. The yellow ones nearby – like the also-nearby pink roses on the trellis – had been blooming for some time while the blue ones had just formed their buds. Last week, I counted twenty buds. This week, they finally began to blossom out.

And I’ve fallen in love with irises all over again. Especially the blues!
