Beautiful. Very unusual. You have some interesting irises.

Thanks Klahanie, did you know Iris are supposed to be deer proof, but do need plenty of sun! Stupidly I have duplicated this photo from 29 May.

It is always good to see it Siris. It is gorgeous. Some people might have missed it. Yes, deer do not touch my iris (huray).
Are these you've posted recently late blooming? All my Irises are early spring bloomers.

This is not a late bloomer, bloomed end May, put on site for someone to see the colour, as the 2 others now, end Aug.
