Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence
Usually I post floral photos over at my blog, Reflection's Flora and Fauna, this one is a bit special, so it comes to Reflections.
A sole iris found growing beside the house of my great grandparents in late April 2012. One of my favorite flowers and my favorite color. I have no idea or recollection if these iris were growing there when Ida died in 1963. I seriously doubt it, however, if they had been - - I would ask, do I come by this love of iris and purple naturally? genetically?? Ahhh, for a moment emotional whimsy - - yes, naturally and genetically.
