new iris

Two years ago this came out of the compost pile at the Laking Garden at the Royal Botanical Gardens. Just the tiniest little piece of rhizome and one leaf. I had to tie it to the earth and weigh it down with a rock to get it to root that first year. This is the first time it as bloomed. Very pretty! A pale blue-silvery (and purple! of course!) with pale yellow in the falls.

I tend to get very excited when a new flower blooms.
