Promise fulfilled



Iris reticulata ‘Katharine Hodgkin’

Way back in September , I planted my spring bulbs, full of hope. Now the Iris have started flowering. I kept them outside for a while, then moved them into the cold greenhouse when the winter rains started because they hate the wet and must have good drainage. I’m thrilled but oh, for a decent camera!
