I think only a few bloomed in this big clump last year.
Here are a few shots taken in different directions from the same iris clump:
Toward the rockwall garden:
Toward the woodland paths:
This big bud

I was hoping it would be a blue color because a few years ago I bought a "blue" iris and have never seen it bloom. I think maybe this is the iris. Often what they call "blue" is really purple.
I do love bud shots.
Here is a very old pass-a-long variety whose name I have never known.
I've always admired its brown-toned coloring.
This large pink variety was purchased in a grocery sack full of rhizomes at a garage sale.
All in all I am happy the iris blooms this year.
