Pale Purple Iris

Pale Purple Iris

My Iris are almost done for the year. I’m lucky I was able to get the photos I did as the rain and wind did a number on them. I had one dark purple Iris that was blooming for a day that I managed to get a picture of that day and it was on the ground by the following morning after a storm. I’ll have Lilies soon, but I don’t have nearly enough flowering plants in my yard. That may have to change this summer.

I am a slightly sane artist, amateur photographer, book addict, wife, mom and raging introvert. I have more hobbies than I can count, so it is beyond shocking that I manage to find time to do any of them, let alone most of them and still have time to do anything else. Of all the talents I claim, writing wasn’t one of them until my muse dropped the idea for a book on my head.

    1. I’m not a geranium expert, so I’m not certain, but… I don’t think so? I think, if they are potted, they should last most of the summer. It could be they need to be dead-headed (pinching off the old, dried up blooms).

      1. I’m laughing @ geranium expert πŸ˜‚ You mean that’s not in your professional C.V.?! πŸ˜‚ I think the plant itself is still healthy, looks good but no more red petals! I think the rain knocked them off. We had downpours but I’m hoping some come back. I actually took good care of this one haha.

      2. Ha! If I were to attempt to write a C.V. it certainly wouldn’t look all that professional. Professional Couch Sitter and Impulsive/Compulsive Crafter probably aren’t glowing recommendations.

        If I remember correctly, my mom’s had blooms on them almost all summer, so there is a good chance they will rebloom. More than likely the rain did give them a beating.

        I have been pulling out ivy from the garden all day. I didn’t do it last year and its grown up under the siding and through the brick 😠😠😠

      4. Ivy can be pretty to look at, but it is my understanding it can be pretty damaging to what it grows on. I think we are too hot here for it to grow well. Instead I have mint I can’t kill without a nuclear bomb or removing a section of soil that goes at least 10 feet deep. Even then, the probability of either of those is most likely still close to nil. NEVER AGAIN!!
