The pick of the crop

I’ve had so many requests to see pics of the irises that I am just going to go thru them all and post the ones I like best. Hope you enjoy them.

I’ll leave off for now with this shot of Evelyn Benson. In previous season’s I’ve found it a nice enough iris but nothing special, but this year she charmed me every time I passed by. My eye was repeatedly drawn in. I think a larger clump planting is in order.

More iris pics…

After such a long slow spring, everything kind of popped at once when the warmth and sunshine kicked in. I was overwhelmed with the number of photos I had taken and the time it took to sort thru them and get them processed into something worth looking at. Here’s a start at it:
