• A Floral Finale

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Today I’m thankful for friends, family, and the flora of my garden that bloom without end, even after a dip into the 20s last night.  What’s more is that here at Rainbow Iris Farm, we’re celebrating our first ever iris in bloom on Thanksgiving!  We’ve often had rebloom into the week of, but never enjoyed it on Thanksgiving day proper.  Check out out Twitpic stream for photos of floral do-gooders like Helenium amarum and Echinacea ‘Tomato Soup’ still in bloom, and of course that little iris.

    Check out some of the autumnal divas (below) showing off late season color.  Who agrees that this fall has been a grand season for heucheras?  Some of the best fall color I can remember.
