It seemed that everywhere I looked my garden blogging friends were showing off their frilly friends.
And I was having a serious case of bloom envy.
Not to mention the nagging doubts about my gardening ability.
Should I be doing something different?
Did I need to fertilize them?
Did I plant them in the wrong places?
Should they be divided (even those they are all relatively new and small clumps)?
But a few days ago, I was ecstatic to discover several of my irises blooming away.
This pale lavender iris is a passalong from Pam at Digging -- she calls it Shoshona's Iris. I love the beautiful color.
Then the interesting gold and brown iris bloomed the next day.
While it's planted close to my Louisiana Iris 'Professor Neil,' which is a deep maroon with gold, they weren't both blooming at the same time this week.
Maybe I can ask them to do that for me when the next ones bloom!
