First Iris Up

First Iris Up

While replanting the yew I noticed what I thought was a purple crocus in the end of the terrace bed beside a yellow one then I realised it was a dwarf iris that is nearly ready to open.

Geraldine, I have the same blue Iris - about four of them.  I was walking round the garden with my friend yesterday and I spotted the Irises.  It has a label on it so will check the name today.  Like you, such a lovely surprise!!!
