The royal purple robes of the Japanese water iris have unfurled


When the weather has warmed enough to coax them from their hibernation, the Japanese water iris send forth green spears. I wait and wait for the day when they unfurl their regal glory. That day came this week. And the brilliance of the iris' purple robes is unrivaled by anything else in the garden.

  1. I LOVE iris! That's the one crappy thing about having a condo, no room for a garden. But I have my little potted plants so we'll see where that takes us this year!

  2. Wow. Now THAT's purple! Our irises (I'm using the royal tense, in keeping with your theme) are just budding now.

  3. I have always wanted a pond with water iris in them...but raccoons love iris sushi, so it's a no go.

    What joy those must bring you.
