Two FFO in the backyard iris bed today. It is really starting to look lovely up there.

But better yet here.

I put this bed in 2010 and it really struggled. So I was surprised that I got a fair amount of bloom last year. But it really took off this spring and is loaded with blooms that are yet to open.

That Golden Panther looks great with the yellow Dutch irises and the light blue iris. What a wonderful color!

I am very pleased with the way it turned out up there the way I put the dutch iris in between the TB. I like the contrast in shapes and the dutch iris are the first ones to bloom in that bed which gets the blooms going slightly earlier than if the TB were their by themselves.

Golden Panther is a wonderful color, so pretty. Blue Rising looks like a huge flower. And look at all those buds, that is just amazing. Things look good now, but won't be long before it will be drop dead gorgeous.

Things up there in that backyard bed are ready to pop open soon. It is going to be a jumble of color, just the way I like things to be!
