It rained some on Monday. Not a bad thing since the house has been neglected so much with all of the outside spring chores being worked on. This pretty yellow Japanese Iris is blooming its heart out. It is a species that goes wild. I have seen these around a home owners pond and it appears to behave itself but the homeowner told me that it could be found in any watery area. I don't know the cultivar but it is very hearty. Mine is planted in the corner of the garden that can and does go under water when there is heavy rain. This beautiful white Japanese Iris is called Seagull. Of course I couldn't reisist a plant with a bird name. It is also very hearty. I have divided the original plant and scattered it all around my garden and the gardens of my friends.
