This lovely iris came from a friend of my father's very many years ago. Since I don't know the name of it I call it Mr Pick. I love to have plants in the garden that come from friends and family.
This paler variety I call, 'Molly'. Molly and I used to visit open gardens together and because we liked the same flowers and colours we often shared a purchase, feeling very pleased with ourselves for saving money. Of course, we did nothing of the sort because we then felt we had a good excuse to buy more!
The lovely rose scrambling up the studio wall was a cutting from a friend's garden. It is Blairi, not too sure which.
Isn't it beautiful!
