Yesterday, I was looking at my favorite Iris plants and I decided to document their life cycle.
The flower bed looks messy with a few patches of melting snow but that's my winter garden.
This Iris grows to a height of 18-24 inches, blooms April to May and the BRIGHT yellow flowers last almost one month. During the hot summer months the plants wither to the bulb and rest until the cycle begins next Fall.
So, I'll check on them again in a few weeks and let you know how they are doing.
This is a photo from last year of the same flower garden as the opening photo.
I plant my gardens so there are blooming plants from early Spring until the first freeze of Fall/Winter.
I never got around to making any photos of the yellow Irises last year but I will this year.
I hope you enjoy going on this journey with me.
