It's Iris Time

We are at "peak-season" for the wild Oregon Blue Iris ( Iris Tenax).

I am sure that I probably say this every year, but I really think this year we have the biggest display ever. The meadows are just covered with islands of lavender and purple.

The rich green grass is such a perfect backdrop to really show-off the iris.

Here is a small upper field that I am sure has never had a display this colorful before. Maybe the mowing that I do every Fall really does help the iris. Or they are just happily multiplying over the years.

Farther up the driveway, right before the Sweet Gum trees.
