My Iris Today (pictures)

newyorkrita(z6b/7a LI NY)May 2, 2011

Ok. I just could not stand it!!!! All these lovely iris and I have no blooms. I was overcome with iris crazies and took pictures of my iris and blooms to be. I know I'm nuts.

First the Dutch Iris in the backyard. No bloom stalks even showing yet :-(( In case you can't tell they are the tall skinny things in a row along the left.

Siberian Iris in the woodsey part of the front yard near the clematis tower.

Little iris section near the walkway to the street. TB iris in the semi circle inside.

Siberian Iris planted along the outside of the semi circle.

Along by by neighbors driveway I have a TB iris section alongside roses to the left and Lilies to the top.

Closer. These iris were planted not last year but the year before and will most certainly need to be divided after bloom.

A part of Iris row TB iris in the backyard. You can also get a great view of my kitchen door and my viola planters. And you can see my sideyard and driveway complete with my two mini vans LOL!

See stalks? They are there!

The new TB iris bed I put in last summer.

Lillies, daylilies and TB iris that provide so much bloom later in the season.

Sorry, I was overcome with Iris crazies this afternoon. Couldn't help myself. But you can all see that the iris are looking very good and healthy this spring. Plus I can already tell that at least some of the new ones will bloom this year which is great news as I planted them all much later than I would have liked.

Thanks Jason. Nice to see we got you in both the daylily and Iris forums. These are a batch of us that hang out mainly on the daylily forum but then also the iris forum.

Great pictures Rita... I'm in the 'waiting' group myself. I have one that's been blooming, Jewel Baby, and one that just opened today, which I'm trying to identify, but the rest are still 'idol.' I can't wait!!!

Thanks for sharing!!

I got a chuckle out of the fact that so many of you were quite willing to look at pictures of nothing but folliage, no blooms. It should be really nice when they do bloom as they are growing so well this spring.
