Wordless Wednesday: Grandma’s Iris Blooms 19 Replies by Texas Homesteader ~ Beautiful Color, Timeless Memories in these Purple Iris Blooms ~TxH~
Love the color combination! I’ve got some of my great-grandmother’s daylilies at our summer cottage in Maine, although I will say that after more than 100 years, they’re not very faithful bloomers…
They’re my favorite color combination as well. I love daylillies too – 100 years?? Wow! Love it. ~TxH~
Beautiful bloom, my iris are just starting to bloom. wish they lasted longer! TALU
Gorgeous iris! My mom has the same ones on our farm. I always had a special love for them because they were our school colors. lol. TALU 😉
Thank you Bolton – the purple ones are my favorites as well, though I don’t get to have the school-color ties to them. LOL. ~TxH~
Wow, those are gorgeous!!! 🙂
Awwww… thanks Bonnie. ~TxH~

Wow Liz, what a truly sweet comment – Thank you! ~TxH~
Amanda, your iris blooms are beautiful indeed. Love the heirloom varieties, and I know I have some of grandma’s bulbs that are lilac colored as well as two-toned. So special. ~TxH~
My grandmother was an amazing veggie gardener but she enjoyed throwing flowers in there even though they weren’t utilitarian. I loved that about her. ~TxH~
What a gorgeous iris. Great photo.
Thanks Gracie – it’s often so windy here in NE Texas during the time the Iris blooms that it’s hard to get a good shot. Glad I was able to snap one on a calm(ish) day! 🙂 ~TxH~
Beautiful picture, TMR. Purple is my favorite color and I have a soft spot for iris.
Awww… Thanks Robyn! The purple ones are my favorites as well! ~TxH~
I have many Irises that bloomed in my yard this year but none like this one. It is a real beauty, indeed! I love the two-toned Irises, especially these lavender ones 🙂
Thanks Anne, these blooms are very special to me since they originally belonged to my grandmother. They’re a gift for the eyes, and the heart! ~TxH~
I just love iris blooms.
Thank you Carletta for your kind words. ~TxH~
