More Spring flowers.





These are the first of our Iris flowers to appear this year.  The previous owner left hundreds of bulbs in cramped rock hard garden beds.  It took me two years but I eventually got them planted in better spots.  The flowers are getting bigger and better every year.  So far this year I have lilac, purple and this really unusual chocolate coloured one.  The lilac one is huge, bigger than my spread out hand.  Its petals have lace like edges.
