As I was driving around Denver on errands yesterday, I noticed that the Tall Bearded iris--which are always good--were uncommonly lush and happy this year with all the rains and the long season. So I took a few pictures. And I realized they might be fun to string together for this blog. I love Denver for many reasons, iris are surely one of them. I would love to take a day or two off--I could compile hundreds of pictures like this--each one different. Denverites are a special breed, and I am fiercely in love with this crazy, windy Queen City of the Plains (not to mention the Rockies!)...
Isn't this a grand way to line your street?
|How about this captivating Halloween combo?|
|A closer view: black iris rock!|
|Or how about white iris against a black fence? Pretty cool, no?|
|White iris are very popular...|
|I hope this lady doesn't read my blog: but I love the Saguaro and the robust iris clumps.|
|There were many long drifts of gorgeous, fragrant pallida everywhere--this was not unique!|
|And there has to be the rebel who plants a Siberian!|
|The backlighting in late afternoon is my favorite feature of these plants!|
|Everyone seemed to be out in the garden yesterday--Memorial day.|
|It was raining: thought I could take a picture through the window...Ha! This was a grea vignette. Let's just pretend I'm an impressionist!|
|I was at a stoplight and caught this Denverite gardening...|
|He looks very cotemplative and pleased. I would be too!|
