Iris Season in the Shenandoah Valley


Mid-May is a great time to see irises blooming in Virginia. I photographed all of these at Glen Burnie Gardens in Winchester.

Did you know that the name iris comes from the Greek word for rainbow? Irises come in many colors. Here we see a few of them.

  4. What wonderful photos of the iris. My yellow and lavender ones are both blooming right now. By the way, the rhododendron are blooming everywhere up on North Mt....a wonderful time to be here in Rockbridge County.
