The Iris

in my backyard has a lot of memories. It was last year about this time that my sweet little aunt became ill. I spent the following 3 months caring for her in Lubbock. She was really not a flower garden person but she had planted iris in the alley and they bloomed without care. I dug some up and planted them in our backyard and this one bloomed this week. Every time I look at this purple iris I will be reminded of her and all the memories.
Tomorrow another story about our backyard.

Oh, Pam--I'm so sorry about your aunt, but what a great way to remember her!
