A Week Of Flowers – Day Seven

Iris ‘Crimson King’

The second year of A Week of Flowers hosted by Cathy of Words and Herbs is coming to a close.

Here we are at Day Seven and I have yet to include irises. I love Irises and have some passalongs I’ve been growing since the late seventies such as this Iris ‘Crimson King’. It was the first iris to open this year−by March 30.

On this final day of A Week Of Flowers, I’d like to thank Cathy for hosting. For an uplifting color boost this week visit Cathy in Germany at Words and Herbs to see florals from around the globe.

    Your irises are always a treat to see. And even prettier with raindrops on them. Thanks for taking part and sharing this week Susie. It has been wonderful!

        I have a lilac colored one that seriously smells like grape Kool-Aid that I used to drink as a kid. (Now I’m appalled at that sugar-laced drink…blah!)

    Great photos of a beautiful flower. Thank you! Iris would have been a ‘flower of the week’ for me, but I realised that I didn’t know the names for any of my varieties 😉 !

      Thanks Allison. A reader helped ID this iris and another. Flowers are lovely with or without names but I am happy to find names when I can and read the background of each one.
