I won’t claim that Betsy and I have a grand master plan for our yard, but we do try to have color in the yard in each season. Irises provide color between the Spring bulbs (daffodils and tulips) and our roses.
We have several different varieties in our yard — the collage above shows five of them. In the top row I have Clarence iris on the left and Waltz Across Texas on the right.
The bottom row shows (from left to right) Cantina, Blatant and Tennessee Vol. It should be no surprise that Tennessee Vol is Betsy’s favorite — she’s one of the most dedicated University of Tennessee Volunteers fans you will ever meet.
