My favourite flower in the world is the Blue Iris.
For the first time ever, I planted half a dozen of them in my garden and finally the spring rains and warm sunshine have made them bloom for me.
I always thought that if I ever grew beautiful flowers in my garden, that I would cut them and put them into a tall glass vase in my house.
But now that I see them swaying in the breeze surrounded by other flowers, watching how the sun and light falls across their petals, how their colours change throughout the day…
I decided to leave them where they are :)
