Iris

It is too bad that the irises don't last longer but they certainly are spectacular when they are in bloom. This is actually a compact miniature iris - love the colour.

Oh yes, I love that color too! I do love seeing iris in bloom. They have such delicate petals and such and unusual shape.

They really are an amazing design Pat.. it's unfortunate that some of the most glorious booms are so short lived!

I completely agree, just like I wish my tulips were here a bit longer too!

Irises are nice as part of a garden, but I don't think they work very well as a mass planting.
