Flowers From Our Yard: Clarence Iris



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

Another iris in our yard has decided to put on a repeat performance. Clarence bloomed back in April when the rest of our irises bloomed, but has put on another display this week. I snapped this picture after a brief afternoon shower.

I wish I had a few irises that would repeat here. I think there are a couple varieties that do repeat here but I don't have any. Clarence is such a handsome iris too.

Your brief showers is what is keeping your flowers going. I am not sure I would know what rain or a shower was anymore.

I love those iris that bloom twice a year. Once is just not enough for those beautiful flowers to make an appearance. Mickie :)

Hi George,

Came over from LV's site. Did you think 30 years ago that we would just be using so much of the cyber highway?

Last week, I had to use the snail way, because my friend didn't email. Lazy me, I typed and printed it. My handwriting has become so scratchy except when I write on the white board for the kids.

It's beautiful!
I really must check into some repeat one. I didn't know that a variety existed until you said said something in a previous post.
That's how much I don't know about flowers. :)
