Love irises. We had them at our wedding almost 16 years ago. Can someone please remind me to buy some next fall to plant in my own garden? Sometime after October 18, because my middle son’s bar-mitzvah is that weekend, so I will be a tad busy up until then.
So glad I have neighbors that grow these purple beauties that I can photograph for my blog.
Can anyone name these lovely orange flowers? They look a bit like snapdragons from a distance, but when one gets up close, one can see the petals are not like those of a snapdragon. I think the orange looks nice with the purple of the iris, don’t you? I found these orange flowers growing in front of a business on Raritan Avenue in Highland Park.
A detail of the orange flower: is it a snapdragon? Or something else?

I also LOVE irises and we also had them at our wedding, 11 years ago, with yellow roses.
Your pictures are beautiful.
Ah, my neighbor has yellow roses in bloom. Must take my camera and visit her backyard, before the blooms fade.
Beautiful flowers. Your garden seems to be in full bloom.
Of course, neither of these flowers are actually from my garden. I took a walk last week in the neighborhood with my camera.
I have already said on other blogs, “I have Iris envy.”
Your Iris photos are really beautiful.Those orange flowers are lovely too.
I am also all for the Iris! They come in so many beautiful colors, and these blue are so gorgeous! The orange flowers are beautiful too – never seen those!
And great shots!
Beautiful Irises! And the ones you call snapdragon are gorgeous!
Leora: Very nice captures of the beautiful flowers.
My first irises are just blooming to take the place of the lilacs that are dying…..
I love iris too, but the orange flower is pretty. And you have a lovely garden.
Blue, blue, blue my favorite color.
Thanks for sharing!
Those iris are very pretty. Have no ideal what the other flowers are but they sure are pretty. Hope you have a wonderful week. =)
The best I can do with identification is that it is of the pea family, sorry, that is a big family exteending over most continents.
Ah, pea family! At least I have a clue on how to go about identifying flowers.
beautiful iris! love the color too!
Those are gorgeous shots of the flowers. Thanks for your visit to my blog.
The irises are so beautiful! And the orange flower looks a little like the general shape of a sweet pea but somehow looks too heavy. It even reminds me of a boronia, though they are taller bushes and are often two toned. I think I’ll give up and just say they look beautiful!
Beautiful and nicely shots.
What beautiful photos! The irises are lovely, and the vivid orange flowers really pop out in the garden.
