Iris' are the flower I most remember of the house where I grew up. They grew all along one side of the house.

Pretty flowers! Both my grandmothers loved flowers but one had a great garden of many flowers. Iris' were a plenty.
My top 5 are callas, roses, tiger lilies, mums, and pink and white starburst.

I love it when you're driving along a country road and irises and daffodils and lilies are sprouting there as a reminder of where an old homestead used to be. Makes me a bit melancholy and in awe of their "stick-to-it-iveness". :)
