The irises are starting. 🙂 When I was a kid, irises were my favorite flower — I even used to do paper crafts where you made an iris out of paper, which is a complex and challenging process. Now, of course, there are too many flowers I love for me to have a favorite. But irises will always have a special place in my heart. I’m not sure of all the names, but I think the second is Batik, and the third is Captain’s Choice, both new to my garden this year.
