    Gorgeous. I love them, too.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Very pretty. I have iris too but they have bloomed for this year. I don't separate them as I don't want them anywhere else.

    So glad you recovered the Irises! My grandmother always had them at the side of her house and they were lovely. Yours are beautiful and bring back fond memories for me. Thank you.

    DH loves them so he is always moving them and dividing them. He has some that blooms twice a year, spring and fall. I order the the Innocent Star Iris this year and got more tiger lilies and Asian lilies for my beds. I love flowers, and I want to enjoy them now so I always order at least two or three times for Mother's Day. And DH takes care of all of them. He is mulching the beds down more and more to manage all of them.

    So glad you were able to relocate those beautiful flowers. It would have been a real shame if they had gone by the wayside like the school house. You did a huge part in making this world more beautiful.

    I Love Iris. My grandma & her neighbor grew them in huge quantities along the property line. I could pick whenever I wanted. and one of my favorite scents is that fabulous Midwestern Lilac, that hangs in the hot, humid summer air. The lilac doesn't do well were I'm at sadly.

    I would make a garden plaque with the story of these beauties. Wonderful.

    I love Siberian Iris, they grow so quickly. I planted a few plants and now I have a 4 foot clump. Mine are the purple ones.

    They are so beautiful! You just can't help but photograph them... Your husband has done a wonderful job with those. Your place looks so beautiful and peaceful.
