Garden Ballerinas

I was so excited to see multiple buds on my bearded irises and I waited and waited for them to open. Then, suddenly, I woke up one morning and there they were! I only have a few of them; I'd like to have a lot more! I hope to extend the planting bed where they are to make room for more.

These irises were planted three years ago in a different place and the first year, I did get a couple blooms. Last year I moved them to another planting bed because the first place I put them wasn't right for them. Bearded iris are rhizomes and easy to move, because they are planted so shallow, but because I moved them, I had no flowers last year.

When I bought these, the name of the variety was "Ballerina". It seems fitting; they almost look like ruffly ballerina skirts!











And just around the corner of the house, my Snowball Viburnum is blooming!



Thanks for stopping by!

That's such a pretty shade of Iris. And it so frilly looking. Beautiful viburnum.

That really is a pretty colored iris! And your snowball bush is putting on a good show this year, too! :-)
