Brad has shown us some beautiful artistically planted garden scenes. I have limited space and an uncontrolled desire to grow lots of iris so my beds are CROWDED! Here are a few shots of one bed. I'll look for more later. Lets see some of your plantings.........

I haven't been growing Iris long enough to have very many nice plant groupings, and many have been disassembled, but I had/have a few. Smiling

I was just going through some pics and was surprised by how many bed shots I have. I thought I had just a couple. Here are some. My plantings are younger than yours, Paul, but I like them.

Everyone's already seen my Iris Lane pictures. And my fenceline bed is under construction, so not a thing of beauty yet. 99% of my Irises are in designated beds for them -- I have very little landscaping projects with Irises. At this point in my life, that's probably beyond me.

But your photographs are beautiful, Paul. Lovey dubby

Neal, I took these photographs last year at Barbara's house (mamajack). Got some NOIDs from her and hoping I got some of the ones in the pictures...

Debra:
The foreground iris was purchased at a public sale before I started keeping names of irises (prior to the iris virus). I would love to know as it is a gorgeous one, blooms a little earlier than others.

Deb -- I can't wait to see your pictures this year!!!

Paul -- is the Iris down in front in your very first picture Gypsy Lord?

Janie -- wonder if the white is Immortality? The NOID burgundy is beautiful. Lovey dubby

Celia -- what a wonderful assortment of colors -- it's a treat for the eyes!!!
