Nature's Garden/Top Shot

Blue flag iris

Here in central Ontario, this is the time of year to look for wild irises in bloom. They are so beautiful...and there's NO weeding required!

Beautiful photos. They grow in the ditch across the road from us but I haven't noticed them yet.

Beautiful. The fact that on does not have to do the weeding is a wonderful bonus. That's why I love going to other gardens to photograph flowers.

So pretty! And these grow wild? Amazing. Even more amazing is you don't have to attend a wedding to see them. :)

I used to have a border of irises where I lived before. Many of them were from my grandma's house and divided / transplanted.

I planted a few here but I did that by a spirea bush and fountain grass that grew and took over the location.

I miss them / need to do something for next year! :)
