I-ris-you …

I can’t wait for my 4,000+ Sweet Lena Iris to bloom. The little buds are thinking about opening their faces to the sun …

… but it was a bit stormy again today.

It’s been drizzling all week, but Memorial Day weekend promises to shine some sun on my patch of sweet, sweet, sweetie-pie, bubble-gum scented, iris.

    You must post a photo when the field is all abloom! No doubt it must be gorgeous !!

    • MaryJane says:

      We will, Winnie. Promise. I wish I could send you the FRAGRANCE when you’re standing in the middle of the patch.

    Good for you! Those of us who live out west know what a blessing rain is! I sure wish you could bottle the scent of your iris! I live in the foothills of the Rockies in southern Colorado, and we’ve been enjoying a bit of rain ourselves. Right now the penstemon are all over excited and in full bloom!

    • MaryJane says:

      Blessing indeed. We’d just finished planting our last row of veggies, when it started to rain, 1/2 inch total. Couldn’t have been more perfect. Grow plants, GROW! For this fall, I’ve ordered penstemon. Better to plant in the fall I’m told. I’ve never grown it. Gorgeous!
