Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Un-named Irises

This one I bought at a garden club sale.

This one was given to my by a friend.

It really does not matter one little bit, that I do not know the names of the two Irises, as they are just as beautiful whether named or not.

So beautiful! I have some yellow Irises too and I don't know the name either. The ones I have look similiar to yours. -Jackie

I like the colors of both and the ruffles of the first one. I guess I'm too much of an organizer--the few plants in the garden that I don't know the names of drive me to distraction.

I hardly know the names of any of my iris. I'm glad I'm not alone in that! That first iris is especially beautiful to me. I love the soft coloring.

Hi Jennifer~~ A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Your iris are lovely.

Hi KeeWee, I am hopeless at remembering plant names so any plants that have been given to me by friends are called by the donors name, ie: Flor's (Florence) Lilies

They are both beautiful, and being given to you by a friend is more important than their name. I have an unnamed iris from my sister, so I'm just naming it after her.

I don't know the names of a lot of my flowers. They are just as pretty.I name them after the person who gave them to me....Maggie's mums for instance.
