This blog is about my garden and the outdoors. I am new to photography but I am trying to show some of the pretty things that grow here in Michigan. I love the wild things who visit me and I dont mind if they eat a bit here and there. I like it more if they let me take their picture. As time goes on I think I will try to show you around the beautiful area that I live in as well as my garden. I try to use my own pictures as much as possible but will also use pictures from the web. If I inadvertently use your photo or work without permission please email me and I will remove it or give credit if you prefer. I will give credit when I know who the owner is. I would ask that anyone using my pictures do the same.

Lovely Iris...................

I managed to get a few more pictures of our neighbours Iris today. The wind knocked so many down. What a shame. I sort of wonder what happened out at the Iris farm. We usually go out there and take a look around when they are in bloom. Have not done so yet. I wish I dare ask the neigbour for some of his hehe.
I still think the lavender is my favourite, look at the details.




Not sure what colour one would call this one........bronze or peach?


They are all so pretty. When you go to the Iris Farm and see just how many colours are available it would be most difficult to choose the most beautiful



Yellow is pretty but is it an Iris?....well maybe not traditional but is lovely.

Traditional Purple.......
The one thing I believe has happened with the modern Iris is that it's taller than the old ones and not at all sturdy. The wind just blew them right down. Mine are still standing I am happy to say.
Some of my Dutch Iris were out today


Not sure if that's what they are called but I think that's right.

Plus my own Iris were looking better after the rain last night

Your neighbors Irises are gorgeous! I can't decide which color I like the best. I have never been to an Iris farm, but would love the experience.
