Three years ago when we went to the lake, mom wanted to give me a bunch of starts. We loaded them into a box, watered them and drove home in the heat. I had no place to put them so I dug some grass right there on the spot. One plant was a purple Iris. Mom told me it was her Dad’s (daddy’s) favorite plant. Last year and now this year, they are taller and more gorgeous than ever. When she was here last Spring and they first bloomed, she told me she had never seen such tall and beautiful Iris and was shocked that they had done so well. Mom surprised me and said: ” I just feel Daddy is looking down smiling!”
Happy mother’s day to my best friend and mentor!
