As usual Kent has treated us all to lovely photos of a fabulous new iris, 'Hold Me Now' I love pinks with blue beards and remember how excited I was to see one in Melba Hamblen's garden in the 1970's. Now I am trying to recall the song that the line came from. I heard it today and it is playing in my mind.
