Ida's Iris

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

Usually I post floral photos over at my blog, Reflection's Flora and Fauna, this one is a bit special, so it comes to Reflections.

A sole iris found growing beside the house of my great grandparents in late April 2012.  One of my favorite flowers and my favorite color.  I have no idea or recollection if these iris were growing there when Ida died in 1963.  I seriously doubt it, however, if they had been - - I would ask, do I come by this love of iris and purple naturally?  genetically??   Ahhh, for a moment emotional whimsy - - yes, naturally and genetically.
