First Iris

My front yard is a mishmash of plants and rocks. I had iris put in about ten years ago when a landscaper designed the yard. Iris is absolutely, hands down, my favorite flower. Every year I wait to see if my iris will come up. I have had years where they just don't bloom. I am somewhat superstitious and think it is a bad omen when they don't bloom. This year they are late but one finally opened and there are several blooms waiting to burst. This drawing hardly does them justice but, hey, you get the idea.
