Irises

Wednesday, 17 October 2012

It's that time of year again....Iris season! I simply love irises - their velvety intensely coloured petals and fruity fragrance, and the silver sword-like leaves! 

Some people see the iris as the most feminine of blooms. I see it as a treasure for every garden. 

True, they bloom only for a short time, once a year. But that time is worth waiting for. 

Richmond Iris Gardens, near Nelson, open for a few weeks over the season and become a magnet for all garden lovers. They grow (and sell), so many different varieties. Check out their catalogue....I'm sure there's a spot in your garden for an iris!
