Today we have lots of purple with EVENING DRAMA, EVENING TIDINGS and VISITING ROYALTY.

Evening Drama

Evening Tidings

Visiting Royalty

Visiting Royality is one that did not bloom for me last year so I was extra pleased to see the lovely blooms this year.

Visiting Royalty is like the "more blue" version of Romantic Evening. I like flowers where the color saturation fades at the edge as in Evening Tidings... lots of more buds and such clean foliage :)

I really like Visiting Royalty. I love the deep color saturation on it. The purple on the falls is so dark. It was worth the wait from last years no blooms to have these lovelies now.

They are beautiful, Rita! Nothing like a much awaited bloom. Visiting Royalty is a beauty, but I really like Evening Drama too. In fact, they are all my colors.

Visiting Royality was my own personal favorite of todays blooms, I just love its color.

Kay, I knew you would like these as they are purple and I know you love purple iris.

Yes indeed. I may have spaces for 10 new iris this year, and while casually looking through the iris websites, I have already have 58 that I am looking at. Now you know I can't do that again this year. But you also know I ill buy too many!

And you enabler you. Mine aren't blooming anymore (well maby 4 or 5) so of course I'm looking carefully...and Prague is on my gotta have it list!
