Bearded Iris Fall Bloom. 10.17.15
Bearded Iris "Sunny Disposition" 10.17.15
This bearded iris reblooms fairly reliably each fall. I don't care for fall blooming iris because the rains have usually started. Rain on these flowers makes them look like wet nose tissue paper. This year it's not raining at the moment, so we get a pretty nice flower.
