No calendar needed…

…to know that it is Thanksgiving week! Every year my tall bearded iris ‘Frequent Flyer’ bursts back into bloom to mark the season.

‘Frequent Flyer’ has been touted as one of the best repeat-blooming Iris germanica for mild winter gardens. Introduced in 1994, this pure white selection has beards tipped with lemon yellow and is wonderfully fragrant.

A single division from my front garden colony was transplanted in this sweet spot in the back garden in the fall of 2014–too many stalks and buds to count two years later!

IS IT HAPPINESS THAT MAKES US THANKFUL,

OR IS IT THANKFULLNESS THAT MAKES US HAPPY?

  1. On Thanksgiving I will be thankful for your friendship and your gifts that you share with all of your gardening “buds”. Keep those posts coming. They energize me to get out in the garden.
