The Iris is Giving the Roses Some Competition

This iris was by far my favorite this year. I do not remember it being this vibrant in years past if it bloomed at all. It is one that had to be transplanted a few years back and it may just now be recovering. A couple of the transplants have never bloomed since I moved them.
This reminds me of a Kansas sunset and I feel these colors knit into a garment or pieced into a wall quilt out be breathtaking. Cathie I think this looks like a piece of your beautiful work.

This is one of the most beautiful irs I have EVER seen. Purple and orange - yes I do believe I see a little art quilt here!
And I love your new header. I'm guessing you've been gardening! Did the snow finally melt?
