New Blooms – Iris

“New Blooms – Iris”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana

I knew once blooming started in my garden this year, everything would just explode into bloom all at once.  It seems that normally one new thing would bloom, then another.  Not this year, I can hardly keep up with the new flowers.  A few days ago, I posted about the first Louisiana Iris to bloom, Marie Dolers.  Now, there are others that have joined in.

My oldest Louisiana iris, Bayou Classic, has started blooming.  This is such a great flower – big and goes with everything.

 

 

I had hardly notice Bayou Classic when I turned and saw Kay Nelson, another LA iris, I just discovered last year was also blooming.

 

 

Even though there is a tremendous amount of new blooms showing up now, I am still able to stop and enjoy these two lovely flowers.
