No two ways about it…irises make me happy. Supremely happy. Today marks the first day that the irises in my flower garden are blooming, so I thought I would share these iris flower pictures. Enjoy!
First year that this iris is blooming – it’s a gift from a friend!
My father in law moved in with us from his home on Long Island, NY. He drove to Virginia with a bag of iris roots on his lap. This is the iris he dug up. It smells like grape soda pop and it will always remind me of Jack.
