    ooh...you've got good ones! Schreiners? I hope mine are more established this year. Year one was shakey.

    Impressive irises. These nicer ones aren't as hardy right?

    The last one has a very unusual colour combo!

    I hope we get some blooms on our Irises. I am afraid the freeze we had on Easter Sunday has killed off most of the plants that 'thought' it was spring. The trees and shrubs here look awful - covered with dead, brown, new growth.

    I really like the last Iris you posted. The color is amazing.

    Cheers,
    BD

    That last iris is sensational! Please do tell us the name! Your columbine look great too- so lush and healthy!!! I miss having those in my backyard garden when I used to live in the suburbs of Chicago. Definitely no lovely perennials growing on my windowsill, that's for darn sure!! HAHA.... Thank you so much for sharing!!

    Well, I miss having iris here, but I'm partial to the blue columbine. The wild ones in the alpine areas here will bloom in July, but they are a paler blue. They are the state flower.

    They are beautiful, my irises are just emerging now - some have flowered (Jane Phillips and White City) but I am eagerly awaiting the others.

    They ae fantastic colours, like the others, I love the third one - but the first and second are very nice too.
