Heirloom Iris And Other Things Blooming In The Garden Today


I used to call these "wild iris" until my
sister informed me they are
Heirloom iris. 





I just love the iris buds just before they
open. It is almost like having two different
flowers.


Clematis growing on tomato cage.
I'm hoping it will start climbing on the
fence.

  3. Beautiful iris. I think you might find out their names on the Old House Gardens website. I think the yellow one is named Flavescens. Indeed an heirloom. You are lucky to have them. Love the way the heirloom iris smell! Wish they made a perfume like that!
