The house that I grew up in had a fenced yard with a row of roses growing down one side and the back filled with irises. There were lilac ones like this and white ones. I loved them and said that when I grew up I would one day own a house that would also have the back fence filled with iris. Sadly, that never happened. I did plant rose bushes at the houses I lived at but never any irises. I always meant to do it but never did; hopefully next year.
Today when I see these flowers I am transported back in time – back to that little girl who not only loved climbing the big sycamore tree in her yard but the flowers too!
