In Love With Iris

I think the iris is the most loveliest of flowers. I love them in all colors.


My mother also loved the iris, so the flower reminds me of her.


Some of my irises are from plants that she planted.


She obtained them from Aunt Susie, my maternal great aunt, who passed away a few years ago.


They are all in the family, so the flowers' blooms give me warm fuzzies sometimes.


They grow strong and tall here at my house.


I love to watch them swaying in the breeze.


This iris is at the rental property I own, which is where I lived as a child. I don't know if this iris was there when we were or not.


I think maybe this one was there, though, just because of where it is planted. That makes it a very old plant indeed, if my mother placed it by the fence row.


Don't they make you want to dance?
