Scenes from Gardens Past: Irises 2007

Photo of iris foliage and creeping phlox in bloom.

We have a lot of irises. They were growing all over the yard when we bought the house, and Himself is very fond of them, and I like them myself.

The problem with irises is the amount of space that they occupy, the short flowering period, and the plain brown dirt that generally surrounds them. In 2007, we solved this problem with hot-pink perennial creeping phlox. Apparently I didn't like it, because it's been replaced with creeping thyme, but looking at this picture, I can't imagine what I had against it.
