When we bought our property in October 2004 we moved my Granny's daffodils, as I have talked about before. After the iris finished blooming in the spring of 2005 we moved them. Planting them on both sides of the driveway, that didn't really go anywhere at the time. This first photo also shows the Siberian Iris around the post.When we moved them there was not one drop of rain for 6 weeks. We had not drilled the well yet, so we had no way to water them. We were concerned we were going to lose them all. They did bloom a little in 2006. Then in 2007 about the time the buds were setting east Tennessee had a drop in temperature to 20 degrees. Very few blooms that year.
Last year it was a little better, but we did have a cold spell that got some of the buds.
This year, no cold spells, and plenty of rain. The only problem this year is getting some sunshine so I could take some photographs. We haven't had rain since last Saturday so I finally got some photos. Rain is suppose to start again today sometime and rain through Sunday.
The top 3 photos are all of the left side of the driveway from different angles. The next photo is the right side of the driveway.
The last photo is the left side of the driveway, but facing the road.
Naturally they do not all bloom at the same time, so some of them have already finished blooming. I know the names to all 75 varieties of my daylilies, but I do not know the names of my iris. I just enjoy them.
