Iris in a milk bottle May 06, 2011 My middle son brought this iris to me this week as an early Mother's Day gift. It didn't come from my garden. I'm sure it was Papaw's idea for him to pick it for me but it was very sweet. I love the unusual rusty color. And what better thing to put it in than an old milk bottle. The bonus came later with some bulbs of this very flower.Next year, I'll have them in my garden.

I think the milk bottle is the perfect "vase" for it, too.ReplyDeletetexwisgirlMay 6, 2011 at 7:09 PMthat's awesome! love the simple things!ReplyDeleteBirds, Bees, Berries, and BloomsMay 6, 2011 at 7:45 PMI love that color!ReplyDeleteFrom the Country FarmMay 6, 2011 at 9:36 PMWhat a sweet sweet boy you have!ReplyDeleteLisa @ Two Bears FarmMay 7, 2011 at 6:57 AMHow pretty! Your son sounds very sweet!ReplyDeleteMaura @ Lilac Lane CottageMay 9, 2011 at 12:47 PMWhat a different colored Iris! How sweet that your son picked this for you and even if Papaw made the suggestion...how sweet of him too. I think it's these beautiful unexpected acts that are so special. I hope you're getting some rain down there in Oklahoma...we're sure in a drought up here in south central Kansas with a temp of 103 today and windy. Stay cool!Maura :)ReplyDeleteAdd commentLoad more... Post a Comment So what do you think of that?
