My Irises are in bloom!
I love irises. They are the most under-appreciated flowering plant in our world. They are resilient; they can thrive without much tending from a gardener. They are beautiful; they have orchid-like flowers blooming once a year. They are lush; I love the long slim leaves in my garden year round.
The photo is an iris that grew from bulbs my husband's mother (a master gardener) shared with me last year. I love irises!
