iris

My big iris are finally blooming.

My little iris have been doing great for a couple of years now, thick growth and lots of blooms, but the big iris have taken a few years to settle into the bad clay soil we have here.  The first couple of years, they didn’t bloom at all.  Then they had one or two blooms.  Last year, they produced a lot of blooming stalks — which were promptly flattened in a late snow storm.

But this year, they’ve finally done what iris are supposed to do:
