BRILLIANT BLUE IN GARDEN


Look! Our winter iris is blooming. I planted the bulbs in the ground in late winter. My thought was that the bulbs will not begin to develop roots until the spring... but look, there they are: one of my earliest bloomers.

Blauwe irissen in mijn tuin. Dit soort is afkomstig uit de Kaukasus en Noord Iran en groeit daar hoog in de bergen. We hebben ze nooit eerder in de tuin gehad. Ik kocht de bolletjes bij de Intratuin en stopte ze veel te laat in de grond. En nu staan ze al te bloeien. Wie had dat gedacht?

 Ik vind ze nog mooier dan tulpen. 
Ik hou van blauw

Iris is a genus of 260–300 species of flowering plants. They come in many colors such as blue and purple, white and yellow, pink and orange, brown and red, and even black. What color so you like?

  1. We are now getting serious signs of spring here, so hopefully our own blooms are not too far behind.

  3. That is so beautiful. I love irises. The don't really grow naturally here in Florida, however there is a variety that does grow alongside the roads in the wet ditches. I look forward to seeing them bloom in the spring, and have often thought if I had a wet ditch I could probably grow some irises!!
    Lovely. Thank you for sharing with us.

  5. I was amazed to see the same small irises in my garden this year. They are lovely and the details on the petals are so sharply visible. I planted a pink iris and hope to see the first flower soon. Have a nice week , Aritha!
