Eeek- I'm an iris rustler! Historicals- lots of pics
Well, we were rained out from our annual treck to put flowers on our family gravestones for Memorial Day so I took the kids down there yesterday...and noticed all the iris were in full bloom (usually miss this but our cool spring has delayed bloom).
Of course "I had to rescue" a few rhizomes of each because they were growing out into the lawn area and being mown.
Unfortunately I did not come prepared with bags to keep them separated so I planted them all in one area and will have to wait for them to grow and bloom to separate them by ID.
And, all I had was my cell phone camera so not the best pix too.
I only "rescued" the ones that I recognized as historicals that were in bloom at the moment. I'm sure there are many others in the cemetary that either were not blooming or I didn't recognize the "look" of "old".
Check out my album. If you open the pictures you'll see any comments I made on the flower.
