Flowers From Our Yard: Blatant Iris



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

One of the showiest irises in our yard is Blatant, which has beautiful yellow standards and purple falls. One of the nicest things about Blatant is that it is a re-blooming iris, so we should be able to enjoy it again this autumn.

I do not have any iris, but my neighbor does. They have fallen on my side of the fence, so now I have them too. They have really been pretty. I love the color of yours.

I only wish the iris would bloom all the time-I know just a tad greedy. Lovely image...

Great photo George. We have a lot of flowers in bloom around our home but none are quite as pretty as that one :-)
