Irises for Easter
Sharing my "wind-blown" bearded irises with you
for Easter Sunday.
I planted bearded iris bulbs in this large plastic container about 8 years ago.
Amazingly, every year around Easter, they bloom for me. :-)
Every year though, they battle the gusty, spring winds we get here in the desert.
Their long, gorgeous stems blew sideways this year, covering my favorite chair.
I kind of like the photo opportunity it gave me though.
It will make me sad to say goodbye to these irises when we move next month.
My friend Judy
that lives in Bellevue, Washington she says they would do well there, and I should try to bring them.
I just need to figure out how to dig up a bulb.
See the container they are in? They are packed pretty tightly in there, so I'm not sure how easy it would be to just dig up a bulb or two.
If not, I will try to just find a happy home for them.
