This is my photo of a Rosario Iris. I planted eight small ones in an arc shape (a nice design) approximately two years ago. When they all bloom, I will try and capture their full beauty. However, sometimes, beauty is but a fleeting moment.
I planted these flowers in honor of my Father, whose name was Rosario. Isn't that a great name?! I didn't cut them back last Fall, I just let the green stems and leaves "be there" through the winter. In additon to shrubs, I like some greenery for those stark winter days, when the garden is sleeping. I am always looking for alittle color.
Well, it is another Spring season and they are back, looking bloomin' good as ever.
Thanks Dad. I don't need to see them to remind me of you. I just love that a beautiful flower is called Rosario.
