An Iris For Betty (Yellow Iris)

Photo Description
As this iris was given to me, I don't know its name. On its label, I've written 'Strong Yellow'. This is the first time I've really captured its intense color. I've done nothing to enhance that color.

Betty, a TF member with the handle 'cybergrannie99', tells me her favorite color is yellow. So this iris is for her. I think it's about all the yellow she'll be able to handle in one sitting.

It's absolutely beautiful, Doug, and I'm so happy it's dedicated to the lovely lady that is Betty!

Well, I hope she likes it. I haven't heard from her, yet. She's such a gadabout, especially on the weekends. One would think, at her age, she would think about settling down just a wee bit.

Here's another shot at evening, Not one enhancement! Is it yellow, or is it yellow?

I am certain this is "Amarillo Frills" type Bearded Iris. Schreiners Gardens sells them- they're over 12 dollars each, which is a lot for an Iris.

Doggone! I never signed up for newsletters. Looks like I might be missing some good stuff. How do I see this particular newsletter?

Aw, that is so sweet. It sorta reminds me of the big blue peter I had when I was much younger.

WOW! What a beautiful Iris (but a yellow flower by any name is beautiful to me).

I wish I had this as I would gaze at it for hours (even slow down on my gadabouts).
Thank you, thank you for such a beautiful screen saver!
I love it!!!

I don't have a lot of taters (rhizomes) to any of my iris now that I grow them in buckets rather than in the ground.

As luck would have it though, my strong yellow is a bit crowded in its bucket. I dug a tater to send to you.

Well, are we an item or not? I wont tell if you wont. We'll just keep those dart throwing Cupids guessing til the cows come home!

All I'll say right now is, 'that guy bathing in the bathtub planter in your back yard ain't me'.

His, Hers. Him, Her, or is that she? His self, yes. I think. 'Through introspection, he got in touch with his inner self', (not him inner self, right?)

Golly, I don't know. It was so much simpler back then, when everything was hisn and hern. Well, not everything. Somethings belonged to Y'all. 'Is that Y'all's calf broke outa the fence down the road'?

And there were the plurals. My Aunt just loved to go shopping at 'Roses' and 'Searses'. But you would have said 'Sears' back when it was Sears and Roebucks. Searses and Roebucks would have sounded a smidgen funny, don't you think?

You didn't!!
Now everyone will think I have "open house" in my side yard!
I can hardly wait for the yellow to arrive but my post lady may "steal" it if she finds out what is in the box (she loves yellow also!).
I cannot wear yellow so I just have to receive my pleasure from seeing the blooms.
I counted 15 blooms on my yellow hibiscus (of course they only last a day but then there are more to take their place!).
Thank you for remembering that I love yellow blooms.

I did. And don't get your bloomers in a bundle, Sweet cheeks. I never said the fella was a guest. For all I know, he's a door to door Fuller Brush salesman who saw your lovely tub and took advantage of the opportunity to wash away a few layers of road grime.

Strange you can't wear yellow. Does it make you look jaundiced?

This is a Bearded Iris. They're also the national, and native plant of Jordan.
The type you have is "Amarillo Frills". Here is a link to page with a photo of one exactly like yours: www.schreinersgardens.com/.../amarillo-frills
