This is always the first iris to bloom. It’s an old one and was at the house when I moved here. It has color tones that I’m drawn to, as do a lot of the plants that were here. It would have been nice to have met the previous gardener. I snapped this real quick last night and it is a good thing because after rain all day today they are a little worse for wear. Iris are beautiful when they are dry!! The temperature roller coaster continues… it’s cold again today.
