Irises, aren't they lovely. I do love them wish they bloomed longer though, like all summer, they are so short blooming that in my little garden, it's just frustrating. However, I took a photo of them for Snapshot Saturday hosted by Alyce at At Home With Books. Whenever I see the Iris I think of Lucy and Iris Smachoo. Lucy was a friend of my best friend Janice's, and Iris was her sister. Their real names were something else, they are Ukrainian and in order to fit in they Anglicized their names to Lucy and Iris. Iris as I recall was part of the in crowd of the Ukrainian youth, that our friend Ronnie was in with. Not sure about Lucy. Lucy is a textile designer, and we sort of lost touch, but she should know that I think of her and her sister and her dad, (never knew her mom, she had died when the girls were young) at least once a year if not more. I love Irises you see.
