This is the last of the iris. I thought I would frame it for a proper ending. It takes it's name from the Greek word for rainbow...because of the many colors it comes in.Actually, they are perennial herbs growing from rhizomes.
Many artists have painted these beauties...including Vincent Van Gogh. I was given a clump a couple of years ago and planted it by the side of the house. It has done well there and given me many bouquets. I love the simple color and the beautiful fragrance. It's one of the flowers that I hate to say good bye to, but I know it will be back again next year.
