Beatiful colours

They are lovely colours Shirley, and also I find these flowers are very fresh looking, whatever their colour. I suppose its like this with all bulbs to an extent.

Lovely colouring Shirley. Been thinking of getting some Iris in my garden. When is the best time to plant them please?

Thanks ladies ... :o)

Julia, I think they should be planted between Sept.-Nov. and they like to be in full sun. I have no idea how many years mine have been around ... just happy to see them return each year! These ones seem to have moved about two feet from where I planted them ... :o)

Also, love the new avatar ...

Thank you Shirley. I have to look out for them when we can visit the garden centres again. I wonder why yours have moved? ;/
Thank you for your comment on my new avatar...like so many grandparents I'm missing them like mad.

Julia, I had an e-mail this afternoon telling me a garden centre group we visit will be open from tomorrow. Woohoo!

I need potting grit,a slim water butt, a garden hose, ericaceous compost , not forgetting, plants, plants, plants!

Can you tell I'm a little bit excited ... :o)

Lovely Irises, Shirley! I hope mine look half as good as yours when they flower!

I look forward to seeing photos of them Balcony ... :o)

You may have to wait a while yet as there is no sign at the moment of buds forming.

Let's hope they buck their ideas up soon!
