Honey Glazed Iris



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Our iris have put on quite a display this year. They do a wonderful job of providing us with beautiful color after the daffodils and tulips are gone and before the roses start blooming in earnest. This is Honey Glazed iris, which has brightened our yard for several years now.

It is a wonderful looking set of blooms. Iris are about to open here on the early varieties. That is a great iris.
