Iris Reticulata; Bulbs planted before Xmas then left in their pots on the gravel, so I bought the two iris pots in, and they immediately both flowered, the heat bringing them on....
So I turn to my favourite book W.Robinson - The Flower Garden and flick through this heavy tome to irises, he writes with such a flourish, 55 named variety, do so many exist today I wonder? Can anyone today scribe those beautiful engravings in the book, I cannot even photograph them properly! One day my new camera will be brought but at the moment I stick with the old one.
