Our Teenager’s Love of Irises

My oldest child, Carl (13), LOVES gardening, and his irises are his babies right now.  He hand-picked them from other gardens (with permission, of course), and transplanted them into our garden. 

Here’s a picture he took this morning of the first blue-purple one this year.



And here are his heirloom irises, first planted in the 1800’s!  (This patch has even had a bike or two go through it accidentally!)
