Irises Bloom

Flags (an old name for Irises in these parts) bloom in "Grandmother's Flower Garden". Blooming at the time of Memorial Day, they are right on schedule too.

It is sweet to be surrounded by the blooms of Irises from Mother, Richard's Mom, Marcia Melberg (a former neighbor and one of our gardening mentors), plus our own small collection we have gathered over the years. These Irises made the move well. We also have Irises from Sarah, which are taking the blooming season off this year as they settle in.

Please note the chicken wire in the photo. Such remarkable inventions give a little bit of challenge to the lawnmower, but allow some protection for the Irises and other flowers in Grandmother's Flower Garden from you know who.
