Beautiful Iris


I took these photos before the April showers arrived today.
They are in my friends garden. Can any body identify them please.

the blue flowers look like Spanish bluebells but I guess you are asking about the iris.

They look like Dutch iris a small bulb. possibly Apollo or Symphony. But there are lots of them and new varieties keep coming on the market.

Thank you Eileen ,yes I was asking about the iris. It is very tall and upright. I will look for the two you have named.
Hope you enjoyed your Easter sailing.

I did indeed enjoy the sailing and the fact we had our eldest daughter and her boyfriend with us. so relaxing. Not done any gardening in the last couple of weeks as I have been quilting.

Hi Marjorie, these look very pretty. Lovely colours.

I have bought some of the bulbs so I will now have to wait to see if they grow. If they fail I will buy some more in the Autumn.

Thanks for your comments.
