A Beautiful Spring in Maryland
I counted more than one hundred blooms from ten varieties of Schreiners bearded iris in my front yard a week ago. They had names like Oregon Mist, Joker, Clown
Memphis Blue, Yellow Sunburst when I bought them beginning ten years ago. One year several blooms were as big as grapefruit. Another year I had a display of one beautiful white in the midst of purple blue iris. It matched the Van Gogh painting I saw in the Metropolitan Museum in New York City . I bought the Van Gogh poster from the museum, placed it in front of my iris bed, and took a picture. THAT was a great year for Oregon iris!
