A Week of Flowers – Day Seven

Iris germanica (Tall bearded iris)

Since Sunday Cathy of Words and Herbs has been hosting a week of flowers. Garden bloggers have embraced the chance to post one or more photos a day of our flowers and gardens to brighten this week. Looking back at my 2020 garden has been an interesting exercise, remembering plants that did well, or didn’t, and making plans. From seeing others’ shared favorites I have gleaned ideas for next year.

It was hard to decide what to share today but I settled on some of my beloved irises. Most of these are passalongs so I am not sure of the names.

    I always enjoy seeing your irises Susie. You have such a pretty selection with almost all the colours of the rainbow! It has been lovely to see flowers from your garden over the past week. Like you, I have also been reminded of what grew well and have had inspiration from others for future planting. Have a wonderful weekend! 🤗

    Your irises are superb, Susie! The delicacy of Raspberry Blush kind of makes me swoon. 😉 It’s been fun viewing your blooms this week, and I thank you for that. Take care.

      Thanks so much. I have a note about Helen Collingwood from a few years ago when I was researching to find names for my Irises but I wasn’t sure. Nice to have names to go with the flowers. Good to hear from you!

    Iris are indeed beautiful flowers. Hasn’t this week been wonderful, meeting new people and sharing our gardens with others? I am following your blog now, and I look forward to seeing your garden throughout the changing seasons. 🙂
