I love irises. They are one of the flowers that I will never forget from my childhood. For as long as I can remember gardens growing up I can remember irises, I remember stroking the hairy "beard" on the petals, inhaling the grape-like aroma and wishing I could eat them. Yep, I'm the weird one who finds flowers so delectable I long to devour them. Ha!
We've been blessed to have been given several varieties of iris by friends and family. We're not even really sure where they all came from exactly but we really are grateful for them. They look so exotic and the colors are wonderful. Three cheers for irises!!!
