As promised and with all the pomp and circumstance due such a beauty…
My all time favorite Iris (so far) ‘Starship Enterprise’
Doesn’t she really take your breath away.
Didn’t I tell ya she was gorgeous!
Starship Enterprise does put the rest in the shade but they still have a beauty all their own.
This one below is similar though not quite as flashy.
It rained here yesterday, the water droplets add a bit of panache to the photos.
Now below, in all his regal glory, is…
He is very dramatic indeed, and just a few steps away is another drama king…
Superstition, in real life it looks more black, but these photos show his purple side.
Not to be outdone is another royal one…
Prince George…or was is Edward…hmmm, it is Prince something or other.
See that behind him, to the left???
That is one of my trumpet lilies.
You think this garden smells luscious now, just you wait until those babies bloom. Then the entire neighborhood will be perfumed!
I tried to get a good photo of the entire side yard. You would see this view driving up beside my house.
I live on a corner lot.
I get a lot of drive by gawkers. I don’t’ blame them, I drive by real slow myself when I come up this hill.
I also attempted to get a good shot of my roses, I stood at the top of my back deck stairs and shot downward. So if the angle seems awkward that is why.
Things are changing daily in the garden. As the iris fade soon they will be replaced by warmer weather loving flowers.
The mostly purple border will be awash with summer yellows, oranges and reds. I tried to toss in some blue with Delphiniums and Larkspur but we shall see how well they do this year.
I get most of my Iris’ from Schreiners Gardens. I am not an affiliate of theirs, wish I was. That is just where I have find the most awesome Iris.
