Iris,  the Greek goddess associated with the rainbow in mythology, sent the rain but not the rainbow to us today. And this first Iris reticulata flower. Perfectly beautiful and in this garden, quite persistent. I have a clump that have been flowering each Spring for at least 7 years now. They like sunshine, but seem quite unfussy about soil. There are crocus out too, so I am guessing the next dry day may bring out a Queen bumblebee. I shall be watching and waiting.
