Iris, inside and out


I didn't know there were so many varieties of miniature iris - Iris reticulata. Some were growing outdoors and some in the glasshouse, and there are many variations of colour and shape. The ones above are - perhaps - called 'Harmony', paired with a variety of winter flowering heather. The irises below, were in the glasshouse, although there were also some outside. They are 'George' (the purple ones) and 'Katharine Hodgkin'  (the exquisite pale blue and lemon ones)... a marriage made in heaven. I've a soft spot for irises as they were my mum's favourite.
