Fall Iris Blooms and Color in the Gardens...

Happy Halloween...

I don't really do Halloween, we do Happy Fall...
But I did want to give you a treat....

So today I am sharing the iris blooming at my mailbox!This area looks so pretty in the fall with the grasses and evergreens.

I am not sure what variety it is, but it is a good rebloomer for me.
The rocks and foliage make a good first impression.
Our house sets back a bit, so this is nice for the neighbors to see a few blooms.
 I think I cut back many of the other fall iris blooms in my clean up.
I just wanted to get everything neat, then I noticed a few spikes of growth.
Oh well, there is always next year.
The salvias, weilgeas and allysum are blooming in this island bed.
 It is pretty in red, white and blue.
 We are slowly losing our fall color in the trees.
 But there is still a bit behind the house.
Looking back towards the lake.
And in our backyard views.

Have a great weekend... it is really cold here.
Getting ready to light the fireplace this evening.

Thanks So Much For Visiting!
