Iris, Roses and Lobelia from my Gardens


The Magic of an Iris

These Iris were from last month and I’ve really been wanting to share them with you.

Iris’ to me are such an incredible flower.  They don’t take much water, they can lay around out of the ground for seasons on end and still survive when you finally stick them in the ground.  And the flowers are STUNNING.  The fragrance they emit is so heavenly that I’m sure the clouds in heaven are floating on their magical aromas.  They remind me of my Grandma Hogard and my father, her son.

And then yesterday morning, while out on my morning walk around the gardens I noticed my Peace Rose was beginning to really open up

So this is ‘some’ of what’s blooming in my yard.  What’s in yours?

Hope your week is awesome

    The peace rose is beautiful. I’m trying to remember what iris smell like – I just can’t! I don’t even know if I’ve seen iris in Texas. Surely they’re around. The last I’ve seen were the natives in Louisiana. I’ve have to put iris on next spring’s to-do list!

    The first time I remember them, my first husband and I stumbled on to an Iris show at the Denver Botanical Garden. You could smell them outside the door as we were signing to get in. Before that I had never know either. Next spring just bend down and stick your nose in one. You will never forget or regret it. I sweat some smell like purple popsicles .

I would love to hear from you, thanks. I also really enjoy knowing how you came across my little piece of this world wide web we live in...
