It's so wonderful to find surprises. This makes me smile.

Diane

Ooooooooooh my!

Bridgette

Beautiful! I love these old fashioned lovelies.

Amy

What a glorious surprise!

Barbara H.

Oh, those are just gorgeous! I have never had irises before but I want to at some point.

Dianne

They are pretty surprise! Super easy to grow, but you have to divide them every 3 years. I need to do that to mine in the fall. There's a post up, but a few down on my blog right now.

Terri Pollhein

Gorgeous! Like finding hidden treasure, isn't it?

Suzanne

Aren't they beautiful:-)

DeeJay

That's Awesome!!

I love irises, and the colors of these are especially pretty. I seem to remember there are iris fields in your area. Someday, I would like to visit them. It must smell so amazing when they are in bloom.

Lovely photos Vicki!

It's hard to believe that something so lovely can come from a ugly old bulb, just beautiful.

Nanette

I love my iris flowers. I have so many of them all over and most are purple. They were some my friend had cleared from her yard. I wish I had some yellows but your pink is incredible!

Gina

What a great surprise. I've seen a fair amount of purple ones but that last picture looks blue! I love blue. How wonderful, indeed.

Oh! They are so lovely!

Alice

A beautiful, beautiful spring surprise. Lovely.

Gabriela Delworth

Laura

They're beautiful! What a lovely surprise.

Wonders Never Cease

Wonderful! What a nice surprise!
I mentioned your etsy shop on my blog about etsy today--I hope it helps friends discover your work!

Anyone with an etsy shop (or without!) is welcome to drop by and give themselves a plug!

Enjoy your pretty irises!

Angie

What fabulous Iris's. I love them and would let them take over my yard if the dog and hubby and kids didn't have a fondness for being able to play in the grass
:-)

Janera

What beautiful irises! I really enjoy your blog -- so pretty and refreshing!

Just a word: now that you know which irises are what color, you should consider dividing them. If you don't they will turn purple eventually -- that is, unless you want all-purple beds. I know it sounds crazy, but it really happens. Ask the old gardeners.

Blessings!

Nancy

thank you so much for sharing!!!
