Iris

Iris1

This is the first summer that I have planted irises. I do not know why I have not tried them before. To my surprise I managed to keep them alive.

Well not exactly all of them made it. I planted some in the autumn and some in the spring. Unfortunately none of the ones I planted in the autumn made it through the winter. It seems that the varieties I used were not hardy enough.

Luckily the spring planting proved out to be successful. The blooms are beautiful.

I guess I just need to find varieties that tolerate cold winters.
