I IS FOR IRIS

FOTD – September 23 – IRIS

The irises got eaten by the skunks and have never been replanted. I miss them, but I can’t manage the bigger gardens anymore. Meanwhile, these are the irises we grew back when the garden was still young and healthy — and hadn’t been taken over by strangling vines.

  1. Heartbreaking indeed to see them fade away this way. But at least you took photos of them.

  2. They are two different shades of purple or is that just the light or camera? Either way, both of them are beautiful.

    • There are a lot of shades of purple. I think each of these pictures was from a separate year. Some years the iris were very dark, but lighter other years. Until the skunks ate the bulbs. They ate all the bulbs except for TWO tulip bulbs.
