Blatant Iris

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

We have several varieties of iris in our yard, and we enjoy the display they put on before the roses start blooming.  This iris, Blatant, is one of the more colorful varieties we have in the yard.

Kind of a funny name: blatant. But it is showy!

LOVE the colors! I think this is an old fashioned variety.

Lynda said...

I know you all have a list of all the varieties of flowers in your yard. And I may have asked - - - have you made a map of them - - - - for someone in the far-off future who will live there after you all. You all could almost charge admission but much can be seen from the street in your front yard. Plus, who wants all those people walking on the yard!!!
