Saturday's Iris Pictures part 2

newyorkrita(z6b/7a LI NY)May 21, 2011

We had sun most of the afternoon after a cloudy morning and then a quick rain shower after 6PM that is out by now.

Merchant Marine is one of my top 5 favorite Iris.


STARRING started to bloom today.


FLORENTINE SILK is blooming today.

Stunning, every one of them. I have Dangerous Mood & it is one of my favorites. Somehow the name seems appropriate. I've admired Merchant Marine for some time, all the flounces. I like those orange beards too. I don't like it on all iris, but seems to work well for these. Beautiful colors on Florentine Silk.

Merchant Marine is really a great blue. I also really like your Paul Black- the color is so intense. Great irises!

Beautiful Rita! They have really started, haven't they? They are all so pretty, but I am captivated by "Starring".

What a beautiful iris! Keep posting, mine are all but gone!
