Your last shot looks very similar to the place were I grow my hostas as well. I've also combined my hosta's with the pink heart shaped flowers you have on the foreground.
They complete each other so well!

Irises in pot near a walkway
Grandiose Iris flowers!!!! Thanks!!!! Jean
Merci beaucoup, Jean!!!
A few others....
Sold as Eden's Painbrush.... Don't think it is a division of the true plant but rather a seedling
Exception. Not so exceptional...
Koshui No Asa. I love it a lot!
Extravagant Plumes. Impressive flower
Angelic Choir. A good white and a good bloomer
They are all beauties!
Thanks a lot Wayne and Dot!
A few more JI. More to come...
An old variety: Ocean Mist
I don’t know if a JI can be bluer than that : Bob's Choice
Frosted Intrigue. I am in love with it
Summer Storm. Another old variety. Big flower, tall plant, late bloomer. A reliable bloomer.
Flashing Koi. So pretty and different
Koshui No Asa
Wow to all!!!! Incredible coloration for Frosted Intrigue :clap: !!!! Jean
The last photo looks like a painting. Very lovely.
I agree, Jean. C'est une fleur étonnante! Are Japanese Irises popular in Europe? Do you grow some of them?
Dot: thank you for your comment! Koshui No Asa is so nice that I don't think we can take ugly pic of it! Another of my favorite JI....
Bridge of Dreams. One of my favorite....
They are available here, but I cannot really pretend that they are popular !!!
Anyway they don't like me, or, I cannot grow them correctly; I have tried quite some Iris crosses over the last decades: the ony one that is a regular bloomer in my garden is this basic blue one:
I do like it, because it always reminds me of Vincent van Gogh, my absolute painter !!!! Jean
Is it a siberian iris?
No idea !!! Those are growing, together with yellow ones, in and around the mini-pond in my garden! Jean
OK... maybe Iris viriginica or other water lover.
Summer blooming Azaleas
