I love them. Last year I planted mine under an apple tree beside my bird bath...what a coincidence! :)

Indeed Gg ...

Karen, we sat and watched many young Starlings and Sparrows this afternoon, they were bathing and drinking from that bird bath in between their parents feeding them, lovely!

Dutch Irises are the best! Ha, ha! Says me from 'Dutchland' as someone said to me the other day!! Lol.

My husband says 'Dutchland' too, especially when any Dutch football teams are playing! Those Iris are extra special to me, as they were uplifted from my Mums garden before she went into care ... :o)

I like 'Dutchland' :) And I love ALL Iris...but there is something very special about the clarity of a Dutch Iris. Whatever the colour.

If I hadn't met my husband whilst studying and stayed in the UK , I would probably gone into something to do with growing plants/ flowers back in 'Dutchland'!

It's a country I would love to visit.

Ohh... don't get me started! The flower auctions are amazing and the bulb fields! I could go on and on ....

There are a few blogs on the bulb fields of Dutchland ... if you're feeling really homesick just take a look at them! :o)
