      Couple of photos from last year ... to start the new season off. @Sheal this is the one you gave me ... "Iris Little Chestnut" Standard Dwarf Bearded Iris, this is ideal for the front of the border full sun well drained soil ....

              It's looking good Spruce. :thumbsup:

              You forgot to mention it has a strong sweet perfume too that will stop you in your tracks when close to it. :)

                  No need to get down on your knees Spruce, pick a flower and pin it on your top, the perfume will follow you every where. :biggrin:
