I love iris. Especially the big ones with the ruffly petals--they are so pretty, and some of them smell SO good! They are my very favorite flower--I am partial to the purple ones, but really love them all. My grandparents created new varieties of them, and I am fortunate to have some of their creations in my flower beds. Now, if I could just remember all the different ones they created--maybe I will pick my parents brains and find out. The one I do remember is called "Hold that Tiger" and it is a yellow one with brown markings on the petals. I hope that one blooms this year so I can show you all the picture of it! Anyway--see the cheeky little bud in the right hand corner of the picture? A yellow one is just dying to pop out next!
