In Love Again......

No, not me.  It's the name of the iris that opened for the first time yesterday.  It's been long awaited with twists and turns along the way but.......................it's here and worth every minute of waiting for it.
I first found it on pinterest a few years ago and had to have it.  So I found a company which carried it and ordered one and then was promptly advised that they wouldn't send it till fall because of our climate.  When it came I planted it and eagerly waited all winter.
When it opened
....beautiful but not it.

A few more years went by and I was talking with someone about irises and the subject of it came up.  Miraculously she said "I have some I'll share with you" .  In a week I got a package with 6 rhizomes and a fully opened blossom!

I planted them and this is the second year and yesterday the first one opened.

So it's a huge joy for me and I hope for you, too.     I guess you could say I am in love again.
