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.
Happy Easter Becca.
I wish you a most wonderful Easter.
These photos are amazing...I love the color of blue they have. Like a blue blue sky. I love how your Iris look in a container too. It gets too cold here to grow them that way.
Happy Easter my friend!
I would try to take them, though - there are so many different varieties and these are just the ones you love....I would try, at least!
and, they're GORGEOUS! As are your photos of them! Just perfectly pretty! I want to do something like this, now. =]
Happy Easter! =]
I hope you and your sweet had a wonderful Easter!
You can dig up a clump and stick them in a bucket of dirt and just stick them in the ground when you get there. You can always dig them up and move them to a better place when you get more settled. Irises are pretty hardy.
Hope it was wonderful. I worked all through it and today is my first day off in five days!!
I love your photos...so beautiful!
I still cannot get my music to play whenever you go on my blog.
My state flower here in Tennessee.
Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos with us.
And you asked about the dogwoods. Yes, they will be fine in Seattle too. My Grandparents had a pink and a white dogwood in their yard. They were in Portland... Pretty much the same climate as Seattle.
Can you not bring them? Irises do fine here as long as you have some sun.
See you soon!
