Superstition Iris

Superstition iris

Superstition bud. I like how this looks almost
 black in the bud stage.

 This iris bed will eventually be no more. I still have to put in
 the "bones " (shrubs and trees) around the fence in the back. This
 will probably be done in the fall when the shrubs
 are on sale. Then
 I will move all the iris to be color-coordinated with shrubs,
 flowers and roses. I don't like iris just standing in a big bunch.
 At the bottom of clothes line poles are the Graham Thomas
 English roses. They will eventually climb up.


Another recommended book - it's actually a book for grade level 5th-8th 
but it is very inspiring and worth a look. You might be able to
 check one out at your local library.
