Day 138

I had a nice surprise this week, when a dozen or so of these blackish/purplish Iris bloomed in my yard. I had transplanted them the first year I was here and this is the first time that they have bloomed. I totally forgot about them! So, I cut a few of them today and brought them inside....their fragrance reminds me of black licorice....but nobody else seems to think so. I am grateful for flowering surprises.
