A Week Of Flowers Day 1

Blogging friend Cathy over at 'Words and Herbs' has come up with the inspired idea of posting a photo of a flower or plant from your garden for a week starting as of today. She suggested it as tonic to help ward away the blues that many people are currently experiencing for variety of reasons. My photo is of a Pacific Coast iris, variety unknown. I picked it up many moons ago from a plant stall in a colourful, brimming full of plants garden in Liverpool. The garden was open as part of the NGS Open Gardens scheme. This iris has a delightful flowers but its flowering period is fleeting. However for a couple of weeks usually in the middle of May it is absolutely magical. Divisions have been passed to friends and when I could take it in flower to our garden club plant sale where I used to have a small stand it always flew off the table. I must try to save seeds one year and see what transpires. Please pop over to Cathy's blog and have a look to see what she and other bloggers have posted. We are certainly all in need of as much brightness as possible in our lives as possible.

  1. Wow, this is a gorgeous iris, Anna! I wouldn't mind having one like it in my garden. Does it have a cultivar name?

    1. Thanks Eliza - it is rather lovely indeed and even better in the flesh. Unfortunately the label just read 'Pacific Coast Iris'. I was going to ask more about it but the gardener had disappeared from the scene at the time.

  2. That’s a very pretty colour. I don’t think that I’ve seen an iris that colour before.
