Every spring one of my favorite flowers to photograph at Brookside Gardens in Wheaton, Maryland are the irises. This year was no different. In addition to the Snake’s Head Iris that I wrote about in April, I’ve photographed several other lovely irises. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed photographing them.
In March, I photographed some early blooming Katherine Hodgekin Irises (iris histrioides). These adorable irises grow in a big cluster in one of the beds at Brookside every spring.
And then one day in late May I photographed several beautiful irises.
First is Beautiful Visions – a Tall Bearded Iris. In shades of rose, pink and peach – Beautiful Visions adds a spectacular splash of spring color to the garden
Next is Dorthea K Williamson Iris – a Louisiana Iris. This is the first Louisiana Iris I’ve photographed.
The final iris I photographed this year at Brookside Gardens was a lovely yellow siberian iris.
