Garden Blogger's Muse Day for June

Garden Blogger's Muse Day is sponsored by Carolyn at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago. Head on over to see what is going on.
It is Iris week at my house, and so I thought I'd share a poem about irises.
The garden with its little gate of green,
Invites you to enter, and view mysteries unseen,
Its vine laden bowers and overhanging trees,
The air filled with sweetness, the hum of the bees,
The flagged walks with Iris galore,
Of most beautiful coloring, unknown before,
Pink, white, purple, yellow, azure blue,
Mixed and mingled of every hue,
You come away wondering, can more beauty be seen
Than in the garden with its little gate of green.

Thanks, Joyce, for joining Muse Day with that lovely poem. I love Irises as well and they are certainly adding beauty to my June garden.

Of all of the pretty irises you're showing this week... this one is my favorite so far! I just love the deep plummy color around the edges. Lovely. :)

This is such a sweet poem, Muum! Iris are one of my favorite flowers too - thank you for introducing me to this verse.
