We have about 12 beautiful iris plants scattered throughout our front, side and backyard that are absolutely gorgeous this year, but they are more than just ordinary plants. They are from Dale’s parent’s house, so they are memories too.
Dale’s parents had about 40 iris plants in their backyard, so when Dale’s Dad passed in 2007 and just before the house was about to sell in 2008, we moved 12 of them to our house. We did not know if they would survive the transplant, but two years later they are stronger than ever.
I know every time Dale sees one of these plants it is a nice reminder of his parents, so that makes me very happy. So for Dale, an iris in our yard, is not just an iris.
