An 8 year, or more, wait for Grand Old Opry

iris_gal(z9 CA)April 19, 2012

The tree loaded with that miserable English ivy went a couple of years ago - now enuf sun for this iris to finally bloom! It reminds me a great deal of Swingtown. Beard is more lav-purple than it photographed.

Beautiful brilliant color! I've waited a long time for an iris to bloom, but not 8 years, thought I was pretty patient :) It looks like it is making up for lost time though.
