Fall planting

Well, I got my two new iris, and got them into the ground, both on the west side of the house. I have a few other plants I'd like to divide and spread around, and we're having perfect weather for it. The only difficulty is that you have to dodge falling walnuts, and be careful not to twist your ankle on the ones already on the ground. It's a banner year for walnuts!

Here are the two iris I planted:


  1. These are gorgeous! I especially love the blue blooms. You're going to love these next spring. It certainly has been beautiful weather for working in the garden. I hope it holds out for a little while longer, because I have lots of bulbs to plant.

  2. I am excited about the blue one too, and I just got a box of heirloom bulbs in the mail today. I'd forgotten I'd ordered them, so it's like a nice little surprise!

  3. I am new to iris, but the cheapo blue one at Wally is such a fragrant and beautiful blossom, I have purchased more, as well!
