A different sort of “flag”

The Iris is known as a ‘flag’ in the UK.  Not sure about in Australia but as I am from the UK I believe it’s an OK term.

Anyway, Sue planted a lot of Irises along the side fence and, after they went berserk,she has been digging them up.  This one survived or reappeared and has been left intact because of the colour.

FYI:  This bendy looking picture was taken with my new wide-angled action camera, purchased with a mind for some wide-angled adventure this summer.

Now, Coffeeneuring Year 8 began on the 11th October!  Somehow I missed the start.  I had better catch up.

    I’ve never heard of irises referred to as flags, but very creative. Good thinking outside the flower box!

    And thanks for the Coffeeneuring reminder. I’ll have to do some catching up myself.

    I like your different sort of Flag Tony ;’-).

    I have participated in at least 5 of the past 7 coffeeneuring (with tea) and am this year considering passing it up. I may yet change my mind, but I feel it has kind of ‘run its course’ for me and I have enough riding opportunities now to not need this one as a motivator. We shall see if this holds true after I get home next week from a long time away!! As well, the weather is forecasted to be quite nasty for several weeks around our place!!!!

    Hmmm Way back in the deep recesses of my micro-memory, I DO remember someone (Mom?) referring to irises as Flags.

    Even after the bloom, the foliage of irises remain as an attractive planting.

    Ah, we seem to have lost the Goddess of Coffeeneuring. Calling Kathleen, calling Kathleen….

    My Coffeeneuring inclination is flagging. Nice irises, wouldn’t work in my garden, they’d need watering.
