The Iris Parade Continues...

Edith Wolford2

Well, Irises are continuing to bloom in the garden and I’ve been very lax about getting photos of them. I’m having to stay out of the garden again and it’s so hard to do when I see so much that needs to be done. I was doing so well from my back surgery too! I leaned over when I was getting dressed and coughed, that’s all, just coughed and it dislocated my back. I don’t think it’s the area where I had surgery, I’m pretty sure it’s the disk below there. I go back to see the surgeon on Wednesday and I will find out for sure. I’m hoping for a complete recovery and I’m actually doing pretty well now, but I can’t do anything that’s going to aggravate the situation. I just have to remember that the garden can take care of its self this year and I need to take care of me. Hopefully my back will be completely healed by September. I’ll let you know what the surgeon says on my next visit.

Okay, let’s get on with the Irises. This first iris is Edith Wolford and it’s one of my very favorite Irises. Isn’t she just an absolute beauty? It’s tucked away in a space where it isn’t displayed very well, but I think that’s okay. I sort of think of it as a hidden treasure. Hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures.

How frustrating for you! I missed all last spring and summer gardening. Your garden will wait for you though.

Your iris photos are gorgeous. There's something magical about irises.

Wishing you a speedy recovery!

Jan@Thanks for today. said...

That first Iris is absolutely stunning. I would love that one;-) I'm sorry you are struggling right now with your back. It sounds so frustrating to have to 'take it easy'...not to mention painful. I hope things will get back to normal for you soon and you will be able to enjoy your garden and spend time doing what you would like to be doing;-)
