The Iris – Green Thumb Sunday

The beautiful iris stands proud and tall in the garden like a regimented soldier.

Whenever I see the iris I am reminded of my Gran and Grandad’s garden in Hull. They always had an array of iris plants in full bloom. So when I saw mine in bloom for the very first time this month, I was nostalgically transported back to my childhood days at my Grannie and Grandad’s garden…… Oh what fun and enchanting times they were……..

My interest in gardening stems from my grandparents love of gardening, so thank you Gran and Grandad for enriching my life with a passion for gardening and nature.
