My Walking Iris that I brought from NH to SC with me bloomed this weekend.
Life is good.

    What a sweet, dainty creation! I think she’s saying, “Thank you for bringing me along and taking such good care of me!”

    I’m no horticulturist but first thought was the purple parts, see told you I’m clueless, looked like butterfly landing zones. Beautiful.

    • I like that. πŸ™‚ A male friend of ours from Chile, gave me slips of this plant and a rabbits foot fern about ten years ago. A friend of his from Columbia had given slips to him years and years ago. He has since passed, but I think of him as I tend the plants. When this one blooms, I just know he is saying hello. πŸ™‚ I saw two butterflies this week. I was so excited I could hardly stand it.

    How cute. I still grow my Iris palida (of some sort) that my ancestors grew when they arrived in Oklahoma during the Land Rush.

    Congratulations! That’s the kind of bloom that makes a gardener bloom too! And, yes, I can see the hello in that; it is so true about the personal connection that plants can make. This is a beauty.
