First iris I fell in love with as a child. Wish they would all grow and
bloom like this. every year.
Under the eave drip line (no gutters), buried in leaves that blow in,
undisturbed for ~30 yrs. Bright red-purple moneywort in the foreground
and blue & white blue-eyed Mary farther back.
This one usually is at least partly frozen out by erratic winter and
early spring freezes. It must have liked our record cold winter - never
have seen it put up so many stalks. If it did this every year, I
wouldn't have started pollen daubing!
