These are iris' that were in my Mother's garden when I grew up. I always loved them. My Mother passed away almost 14 years ago and My Dad a decade later........ When my Dad passed my Sister was given his home...... :D She and my Brother dug up some of gardens and sent a HUGE bag of bulbs for me to plant in my own garden...... They have meant a great deal to me. However they hadn't bloomed, 3 years and nothing, but just the other day dh came and got me and showed me..... Dozens of blooms HUNDREDS of buds !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so thrilled.....
It feels so good to look at the same lovely flowers my Mother loved..... Even 14 years later and 2000 miles away........ Thank you Robin and Jeff !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love you both !!!!!!

Wow, they look the same way that I remember them looking when we were kids, those iris are Mom's way of smiling at you from heaven.

I dug those up in order to make room for the vegies, I am so glad they ended up in your garden!
