End of May Garden Walk

End of May Garden Walk

I absolutely love the time of year when I can take my early morning walk without getting chilled.  In the mountains even summer early mornings can be very cool but this week we have had very mild overnight temps.

And a very grand week it has been for fresh blooms and birds serenaded me as I stroll.  Camera in hand, of course!

First up, one of my new Iris we purchased at the Iris Farm we toured last month.  Champagne Elegance is its name, and so fitting.  The subtle colors are so very elegant. I will get another shot of it to share once it is fully opened.Champagne Elegance Iris, FlowerPatchFarmhouse.comMy Instagram and Facebook followers have been treated each morning to fresh new photos of what is blooming but I have failed to bring everyone else here a view.  So this morning I am sharing with all my blog readers.

A black Iris that was enjoyed by many is called Superstition.

Beverly Sills Iris, a graceful pink, blooms happily beside my Golden Celebration (David Austin English Rose).  I buy the ‘own root’ roses as our climate can get quite cold fast which can damage or kill off roses.  With the own root roses they will come back true from the roots after such an event as a freeze kill.

orange iris, FlowerPatchFarmhouse.comStanding beside my studio cottage is Jazz Festival.  Creamy upper standards with a rosy fall.  These have gotten a bit thick and will need dividing this season but I have some space for the extras.Jazz Festival Iris, FlowerPatchFarmhouse.com Another shot of Jazz Festival, it displays so well with it’s Foxglove neighbors.  The Foxgloves are all starting to bloom too so the show will continue.  I have so much more to share but will save that for another day.Foxgloves beside the cottage, FlowerPatchFarmhouse.comWe are nearing completion of the repainting of the interior of the studio, now it is time to set it right.  Everything is in a jumble moving it about and out of the way to paint.
I have some painting tutorials lined up and I am going to give some live, in person painting lessons too.  (I hope that works out, we shall see)

Have a great day!

Your iris are beautiful. You have some lovely pictures that you shared. Thank you. My mom has a love for bearded iris and I grew up with a huge bed in our back yard. Sadly, the trees have grown and there is too much shade so the iris bed has been reduced to a couple of smaller spots in the yard. She planted four iris in my yard several years ago and I eagerly look forward to their blooming each spring.

One of my absolute favorite Iris is in the shade this year and I don't see any blooms on it, so it will have to be moved! I too, eagerly look forward to the Spring bloom of Iris, it just starts the garden season off with a bang!

I loved all of your irises, especially 'Jazz Festival'; that one is gorgeous. I also love it when irises and roses bloom at the same time. I grew 'Golden Celebration' at my previous home and it was stunning. I hope you have a great day!
