    Love the color combination! I’ve got some of my great-grandmother’s daylilies at our summer cottage in Maine, although I will say that after more than 100 years, they’re not very faithful bloomers…

      Thank you Bolton – the purple ones are my favorites as well, though I don’t get to have the school-color ties to them. LOL. ~TMR~

    I look forward to the Iris blooms each year, especially the purple ones. Mine came from my Grandmother’s Garden and I always feel like she’s stopping by to say hello when they bloom. for what it’s worth

      Thanks Gracie – it’s often so windy here in NE Texas during the time the Iris blooms that it’s hard to get a good shot. Glad I was able to snap one on a calm(ish) day! 🙂 ~TMR~

      My grandmother was an amazing veggie gardener but she enjoyed throwing flowers in there even though they weren’t utilitarian. I loved that about her. ~TMR~

    I LOVE heirloom irises. I posted on my collection last year. I have some similar, if not the same as this one. How precious! Check out these two posts and give me your opinion! http://dymacek.blogspot.com/2012/05/heirloom-iris-part-2.html http://dymacek.blogspot.com/2012/05/heirloom-iris.html

      Amanda, your iris blooms are beautiful indeed. Love the heirloom varieties, and I know I have some of grandma’s bulbs that are lilac colored as well as two-toned. So special. ~TMR~

    I have many Irises that bloomed in my yard this year but none like this one. It is a real beauty, indeed! I love the two-toned Irises, especially these lavender ones 🙂
