Early Iris

Early Iris
Garden Series
3.5 x 2.5 inches
acrylic on watercolor paper

Too early for MY garden!
I got really jealous seeing pictures of all the irises blooming in other parts of the country - and knowing that it will be at least a month before mine bloom, I bought a few at Trader Joes.

Irises are my favorite flower....they remind me of my grandmother. They were her favorite, too - and she managed to cultivate an enormous amount of them along with many other amazing blooms in a tiny little garden. I myself have a black thumb, but my irises (taken from a clump from my grandmother's garden) always manage to survive.

Very nice - those dark blue iris look so nice against the green leaves, don't they? Irises are my favorite flowers as well - so many varieties and colors. I can't wait for iris season, either :).

Beautiful Debbie ;o) Your irises survive, because they are from your grandmother's garden ;o) Lots of love traveled with them ;o) Have a great day!

I adore irises too, and can't wait for them to bloom! Your lovely painting will tide me over until they do... :)

Oooh - Debbie - I knew you beaded flowers (which are beautiful by the way ;-) but I must have missed the irises. Off to check it out.....
