Random Photo: Iris

We had only a handful of tulips come up in front of our building about three weks back. The dense green growth surrounding them led me to believe we might see more tulips, but we didn't--either due to the cold spring or hungry bunnies. Then I noticed that some of the stalks were growing quite tall, with multiple buds on each. I was pleasantly surprised to see these tall iris come up.

I do love Iris. The lake house I lived in for seven years had a few patches of them and they were always so pretty. I need to add Iris to my tulip/buttercup hillside. haha

Iris are really pretty. Unfortunately, the darn squirrels love their bulbs. A friend planted four differnt variety one year. She had to replant them a couple of times, and only two variety have come up this year.
