Iris, named after the Greek goddess of the rainbow, are a low maintenance flower that come in all coloures, loves all climates. My father loved iris. My friend, Ed Foster, gave me some of his prize iris. They bloom this time every year in remembrance of Ed’s passing and in Celebration of his walk on the golden road. Man I miss him, his handsome friendly face, his eternal smile. I don’t do much for my iris. Ed tends to them. Plant a few, water as needed, clip off the spent flowers, thin occasionally and mostly just waltz among them and enjoy!
