Stop and Smell the Iris

My ongoing love affair with the iris began when I worked for a small bank in what was once a small town. There was a separate building called the annex, where I would go to fix the staff's computers. One spring my stroll was rewarded with something magical.

It is getting late, but I had to read this story in its entirety. This iris also forms an important part of our landscape
here in the Midwest. It is just now showing some color, and by next week should be at peak bloom depending
on weather conditions. Thanks so much for sharing during this special week! I have enjoyed the celebration of
irises with all the pictures, articles and forum posts at ATP this week!

Hi there TBGDN!

Thank you so much for your very kind words. This has been an amazing week here at All Things Plants as we celebrated one of the finest flowers in the garden.

Your irises look so beautiful! Enjoy the blooms. They are a blessing.

Take good care,
