First, of course, since it is Tuesday, here is my weekly update for the Garden Spot Sampler SAL...
It is finally dry enough around here, post NH Monsoon that we had over the last few days, to take some pictures of some of my irises! I haven't shared any in a while. I have many, but am abritrarily limiting myself to three photos today. Here is a pink tall bearded iris, whose name totally escapes me...(Of course, I went and looked it up - it is Grateful Citizen)
This little pretty is currently greeting our mailman at the mailbox... and if I remember correctly, it is called Patina... but who knows, I could be way off about that! I really love the color combination in this one :-) I think Mike took an especially good photo of this iris... kudos to him! (Yep, looked it up - it's Patina!)
And, I haven't seen this pic in a few days - just came across it in my recent garden photo file that Mike makes for me... hmmm, is it a good photo? This is my tried and true Echo de France tall bearded iris... survived the stomping by the bear when he pulled the birdfeeder out of the bathroom window just above it... this lady blooms every year! Most of my irises seem to skip a year or two between blooms (except for the heirloom irises, they bloom consistently too)... OK, that is today's flower show! LOL
OK... I lied! I decided to also share this fourth photo. This is a siberian iris called Summer Skies. I got it on ebay two years ago. It wasn't ready to bloom last year. I love this one! I have never seen it anywhere before, so I only just added it to the database over at Dave's Garden (cool gardening site! link is in my sidebar...)... it is like little periwinkle blue and white butterflies, more delicate that most siberian irises :-)
New DVD Release Tuesday! We got The Pink Panther. I've been dying to see this one... hope to find a day without baseball soon so that I can watch it - I have tons of DVDs backed up because baseball is on almost every night :-)
