Thank you LuAnn for the opportunity to download if we'd like to. I have some of those sky blue iris and over the years I've tossed others out of the garden to give them more room. They are the prettiest of all I think. I often use close-ups of flowers to determine what colors to include in a quilt.

Thank you for taking us on a walk through your garden - the irises are putting on quite a show!
Ours are just starting - hot and dry here in northern Wisconsin - does not bode well for the summer either...we have all ready used the A/C more this month then all of last summer. On a positive note - the tomatoes, corn and peppers should be happy!
Send rain!!

Those are gorgeous photos and gorgeous flowers! Beautiful! I have a brown iris that came up this week, and it looks a lot like yours. Does your brown iris have a name?

I love the iris, but don't know any of their names.
