The flowers coming out at this time of year are stunning.
Right now, the bearded iris are showing off in a few quiet little corners. These were rescued gifts, so I'm not really sure if they have specific names or even how old they are.
I have several different varieties & am lucky that they bloom at slightly different times so the gardens are always in a change of wardrobe.

Now begins the process of slowly dividing them over the next few years & increasing my population. These again will provide a second set of flowers if I prune them back when they start to look tired. Right now, they are perfect for the insects & sort of have an 'insect look' to them themselves.
