Welcome Back

Oh how I have missed you and have been awaiting your arrival. I have watched you grow through the winter and today, you showed your face.

I planted six Dutch Iris about 15 years ago at our old house and when we moved I dug up a few of the bulbs, They have since multiplied and I divided them again last year and they are all over. I love them. They are reminders of our wonderful days in our old yard where my two oldest played so much. 

Put the cutest darn chocolate eggs in my old Ball jar. Aren't they adorable? Love the colors of the season. Light and bright.

  1. Love the eggs. So sweet! Also love the iris. Isn't it amazing how those iris pop up through the dirt and bloom into intense color.

    It's great to have you being a part of Seasonal Sundays.

  2. Happy Spring to you. Love iris in my garden, but need to get some of these Dutch ones. They are some of my favorites. Cute idea to fill the jar with the eggs. I should do that! ~ Sarah

  3. Your irises are beautiful! Mine have not bloomed yet! I had a friend send me some after she divided in fall. I have since divided so many times, that I have them all over now! I love them. Mine are grape iris. Smell just like a grape sucker. I want to eat those candies!!

  22. I have never grown irises but I would love to. Can you tell me what sort of conditions they like? I have leaves up which I thought were going to be irises but they have never flowered in the 2 years I've lived here. I only get leaves!
