Bloom Day Fleur de Lys



It is Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day again! On the 15th of each month, we gardeners with blogs share a few bloom photos from our gardens. 

Here in the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, we had a soggy and cool spring, so my garden is happy–though I’ve had little chance to get out there and maintain or enjoy it!

In my garden, I have a multitude of blooms, but I thought I’d focus on just the Irises this time. Most are bearded types. None have names as they were all pass-along plants that I got from other gardeners — either at plant swaps or in direct trades. Likewise, the one patch of Siberian Iris I have is from a garden club friend.

One Iris that I forgot to take a photo of was the Yellow Flag Iris in my pond, also a pass-along plant. It is considered invasive, but on my urban corner location it isn’t going anywhere (plus I snip the seedheads off before they can ripen).

So what is blooming today in YOUR garden?
