My Walking Iris that I brought from NH to SC with me bloomed this weekend.
Life is good.
What a beauty, Judy! How long do you get to stay in SC yet?

We’ll head back north the last week in March. Hoping to enjoy two springs if Mother Nature cooperates. 🙂
Oh, good. You have lots of time there yet. I hope you do get two springs. That would be wonderful!
Beautiful!! Thanks for sharing. •••Ginger•••
That’s beautiful, Judy I can see why you took it on vacation with you
and what a beauty she is, love the purple centre!
What a sweet, dainty creation! I think she’s saying, “Thank you for bringing me along and taking such good care of me!”
I think she just might be saying that. 🙂
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. 🙂 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. 🙂 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.
I love all plants, but when they have a personal connection that makes it even better. 🙂
It was worth making the effort to carry this precious plant. How beautiful.
I love the scent of these – so sweet!
Stunning flower – I love the joy we can all feel about this.
Gorgeous flower & all the sweeter when there is a personal connection. .
Never seen a flower like that. Amazing!
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.
have flowers, will travel!
Best line ever. I think you need some t-shirts, and I will buy several. 🙂
It “walked” all the way to SC! It would’ve been so sad to miss that bloom–I’m glad you got to see it!
I left the mother plant at home hoping it will make it through the colder than usual temps in the house, but I did not want to miss the one time a year it blooms. I’m so happy I brought it with me and schlepped it in and out of the motels. 🙂
Travelling flowers! I love the idea and this one is very lovely indeed. 🙂
You’re making me desperate to take another winter trip to SC.
Oh it’s a gorgeous one to boot! How fun for you my friend!
I have walking iris walking all over my garden they have a tendency to spread their tendrils (if that is what you call them) far and wide
