These "yellow flags" (as my mom calls them) were *stolen* from her grandmother's gravesite before they moved the headstones to the other side of the grave.
These were suppose to be dark burgandy on the falls, creamy pink on the uprights and a bright gold in the center with an orangy fuzzy things (I think I need a crash course on flower anatomy! LOL). But, they kinda mellowed out over the years. But they are still pretty!
These are some old-time white iris that my dad's mom had growing at the farm homestead. My aunt took these with them when they moved in 1969 (after my grandpa died). These ones came from my Aunt's garden about 10 years ago. I really need to divide this patch. These are huge flowers, the size of a bread-and-buter plate.
This is my favorite...I can't remember exactly what it was called but Sultan's Night is what sticks in my head. In real life it looks darker than in this photo. Amazing how they photograph differently than the naked eye sees them!
This is my sister's favorite; a rusty peach color.
This one is pale blue...didn't show up that way, looks more purplish to me in this photo.
Let's see...I had a lime green one and one that was supose to be black...but neither of them winters over well...I've replanted them three or four times over the years. So, I've given up! LOL
