    • This plant was a gift from a dear friend who has since passed. The original plant was given to him by a friend in Costa Rica. I’ve had it here in the house for eight years or so, and it puts off these gorgeous blooms once a year and the blooms last one day. When you are surrounded by feet of the white stuff everywhere you look, the blooms from this plant are heaven sent. ๐Ÿ™‚

    There is something so “Easter-y” about this blossom! And you have the skill to nurture anything into a burst of springtime! Wow – only one day?! Fascinating!

    That is just breathtaking and I am so hoping it brightens your days. A much needed change from all of that white stuff! It is amazing how many different types of iris there are and all of them beautiful.
