Raised Bed In Bloom

Several years ago, I built a raised flower bed for Sharon. She's been planting irises in it since then, and here's what it looks like today:


Raised Bed With Irises

There are dozens of irses blooming in this bed. Some of them are "grapeys", which are an heirloom breed that smell like grapes. (Modern hybrids have little aroma.) Those bloomed last week for the most part, but there are still a few in there. Most of them at this point are "mauveys".

It's worth noting that there are dozens more irises out front and next to the house. I think there are going to be a lot of bulbs looking for homes this fall.
