    Default Our water iris is blooming

    Thought I would share something in bloom since I haven't posted a photo in awhile. This is an iris growing in a pot in our pond. This year it looks really wonderful. Enjoy.

    How long has it been in the pond?? I love the color! Mine out front are from the same family but with white petals and sometimes the faintest hint of either lilac or yellow in the outer/upper petals....

    We have had it in the same pot in the same place for three years. I got it in trade. The guy who grew it raised it from seed. I love how Blue it is.

    Is that a versicolor? It's fantastic - and so is the pond (or small lake!).

    Yes it is versicolor. Thanks for reminding me. LOL! Here is a couple of older shots of the pond and fall.
