Early Irises



I was going to post some more of my books today, but the sun is shining and this little beauty caught my eye.
Iris 'Katherine Hodgkin' is the result of a 1960's cross by an amateur gardener who named her after the wife of a fellow plant enthusiast.
My other early iris, the winter flowering 'Mary Barnard' was collected by the lady herself near Algiers in 1937.

    1. Thanks Gill,

      I take a lot of close-ups of my plants - they are good inspiration for textile work.
