Irises

Filed under: Flowers, Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Miriam @ 8:35 am

Another pleasant surprise in my front garden after the daffodils these the big purple buds showed up.

IrisI was excited because I had been seeing big beautiful irises blooming everywhere in Southern New Hampshire. Mine seemed to bloom several weeks after my neighbours irises. Perhaps I just had a late blooming variety. Or maybe the area in which they were didn’t get enough light.

IrisDomestic irises seem huge and lush. This weekend I found some other irises in Pawtuckaway State Park. Are these wild irises? Are Irises native to New Hampshire?

IrisI ask because the are of Pawtuckaway used to be a populated area, so perhaps many years ago they were planted there. I found them on the shore of Round Pond right off old Round Pond Rd.

IrisFlowers are so short lived.

  1. I couldn’t agree more. I hate how short lived flowers are and this season in particular has seemed to have very little flowering plants.
