Purple Passion Iris Garden is a new work based on the blue irises in my garden. These flowers haven't bloomed yet, but there are plenty of buds so I'm crossing my fingers for a great spring for the irises. The photo below is from my garden last year, I've added quite a few new colors this year, including Witch's Cape, some yellows and some stripey blues - can you tell I have already forgotten all the names? I order my bulbs every year from Argyle Acres Iris Garden, located just a little ways from Flower Mound. I can hardly wait to visit them again when they open in a few weeks.
