Bearded Wednesday

The dark Iris was a gift from my Aunt about 10 years ago. I believe this was a root dug from my Grandmothers Garden many years ago.

Keeping this short because it is traditionally Wordless Wednesday........

You are really enjoying your new camera! (And so are we, by the way!) :-) You have a very special plant in that iris. I hope you'll have a chance to pass it to another generation that will treasure it as much as you!
