Another Iris in Bloom

Flower Show Iris, Fairfield Glade, November 3, 2008.

Will the iris above be the last we have to bloom this year?  This iris burst into bloom a couple of days ago, giving us some much-appreciated color in an otherwise drab flower garden.

There are a couple more iris flower stalks showing, but I’m not sure they will have a chance to bloom before they get nipped by frost.  A cold front moved through yesterday and lows are predicted to be near or at the freezing level for the next few days.  Lows like that are great for enjoying a roaring fire in the fireplace, but not for blooming flowers.

We were especially glad to see Floor Show bloom because it didn’t bloom this spring.  I guess it thought we would enjoy it more in the fall!
