Back Yard Irises

Since the blooms are just about over for this year, I thought I would share these two close-ups taken last week.

There were many more flower stalks and blooms this year than last. I'm hopeful that next year, it being the third year since division and transplant, will yield even more.

Our friend Cheryl from California is in the air as I type this, somewhere between the Atlantic coast of Canada and the southern tip of Greenland according to the flight trackers. She's still got about four hours to go before touchdown in Paris. By the time many of you read this, she'll have arrived and be here sipping something bubbly with us!


  1. Hi Cheryl. I'm right behind you. Have a nice vacation in Île d'Oléron with Ken and Walt. See you in two weeks!

  2. Wishing you a beautiful time. Will look at our Eiffel Tower photos while you're away.

    Yesterday my comment vanished into thin air. Great job on your kitchen. I'm sure Callie likes the new look.

  3. Will look at "your" pictures. The "y" vanished into thin air...

  4. chm, bon voyage!

    claudia, enjoy the tower! We're enjoying the kitchen!

  5. Ken and Walt are consummate hosts... wish you all were here!

  6. irises are the only people soul patches look good on.
    thanks for the beautiful pictures.

  7. Well...drunk with Chateauneuf du Pape and ready to climb the Tower. Oops!...Take care!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
