Dedicated to Larry and Flo, whose photo last year blew my socks off. They didn't know which variety of bearded iris it was, but kindly offered to send me a rhizome, which I planted by my front door and watched all winter as the leaves stayed green and erect. Though buds did not form as early as those on some of my other irises, all of a sudden one morning last week, there they were, on stems that shot up to be close to four feet tall! And then, from fully tight buds the night before, emerged the astounding flowers. Thank you, Larry and Flo, for the iris I have named in your honor. I hope it will grace my entrance for many springs to come. Tomorrow I will post the photo of the entire flower.

  

Remember, no photos in comments and no notes, please.

 

And forgive me for not being able to visit much. It will be a while before I can resume spending as much time on Flickr as I used to and want to. It seems the more work I complete, the more comes in. Thank you in advance, as always, for your visits, which I sincerely appreciate.
