It's All About the Irises!
I am in love with irises in May, especially the antiques! They have such delicate colors, and each one has a different scent. I. Pallida smells like grape soda. Some of them are spicy, some sweet. One smells like baby powder.
This one smells like peaches.
A hint of mint here.
More irises. I don't know the variety names, they were all here when I moved to this garden.
One of my favorites
A delicate little flower
This is I. Pseudocorus, the water iris. Invasive but beautiful.
Iris border along the edge of the woods. This is where extra irises go when I have to move them, or when I get them gifted to me. We have a lot of walkers on our street when the irises are in bloom, some of them come with cameras. I love sharing the garden!
"What gorgeousness, what blazonry, what pomp of colors
