Flower Friday: Irises (part 2)

I featured irises in a Flower Friday post a few weeks ago, but today when I walked into our backyard and saw that my very favorite irises were beginning to bloom I had to snap a couple photos & feature irises again.  :-)  We separated and transplanted many of our irises last year & the Blue Staccato variety decided to skip an entire season of blooming, so I was incredibly excited to see them begin to bloom today!  You can read our previous iris post here.

Random book news:

1.  Maggie Stiefvater's Linger trailer is spreading like wildfire around the blogosphere today, but it is such a lovely and creative trailer that I have to share it here also. 

2.  Novel Novice is giving away three copies of Kimberly Pauley's Sucks to Be Me & Still Sucks to Be Me.  The giveaway ends May 31st & you can check it out here.

And one last iris pic!  :-)

Happy Reading!  :-)

Your iris' are lovely. My mother had one that was similar to this one when I was growing up and it was my favorite. It was called "Dot N Dash."

I almost posted pictures of my iris's too! Mine are a very pale lavender and are beautiful! I was happy when one was too heavy and I had to trim it to put in a vase. I find myself staring at it quite often! Yours are really beautiful and if you have any extra bulbs one day I'll take some! Gorgeous!

Thank you, Lorielle. I will have to look for Dot N' Dash irises next time we are at the nursery. I am always looking for more purple flowers to add to our yard. :)

Candace - Ooo... I bet your pale lavender irises are lovely. Next time we divide ours, I will send some up your way. I was so disappointed that our Blue Staccatos didn't do well after we divided them last year, but our yellow-bearded purple ones (not sure of the variety) seem much hardier.
