Iris, lots and lots of Iris. So many of the heirloom variety that they're not even trying to deliver the newspaper in the box any more. They just leave it near the flower bed in the yard. I love old fashioned Iris, particularly if they surround a mailbox. Mom had some around hers at the old farmhouse so I guess that must be why it just seems right to me.
This yellow variety is pretty too. You can certainly see it from a distance. I have two bunches of these that I didn't realize were this color until this year. They had almost been overtaken by weeds the year before we moved in.
Mix in a few of these and it's stunning.
But I have to say, I really love these two. All that digging and replanting last year was worth it.
The unusual color of this one will stop you in your tracks.
