Me too! Specifically, Blue Flag irises. They’re a lovely delicate lavender color, with huge petals. My mother used to have them growing on either side of her front porch, and they bloomed a few weeks before my birthday in late May, so I would always go over there and cut myself a big birthday bouquet.
But then Dear Mother decided she wanted a rock garden, so she ripped out all the bulbs and THREW THEM AWAY!!! Never asked me if I wanted them. I haven’t been able to track down a source, either, so if anyone has one, please let me know!
That said, it was lovely last year when Mr. Scarlett brought home a dozen red roses on the 12th anniversary of the day we met – a rose for every year. He said it was the first time he ever gave anyone a dozen. Gotta love him!
