Natural Beauty

Irises are one of my favorite flowers, purple especially.  I dug up some before we moved hoping to having a place to put them here.  They ended up sitting around in a grocery bag for over a month.  I don't think they're going to make it.  I put them in the ground just to make sure.  Last week when I looked in the flower garden in front of the porch I was trying to figure out what some of the flowers were.  There were these tall skinny rods with a tight bud on top.  I could tell they would probably be purple but the stem and leaves didn't look familiar.  To my surprise they bloomed and are purple irises, a mini variety.  There a lots of them which makes me happy.  I thought I'd share some with you.
