I was outside with Maggie when I spied some purple in the sage that I had planted in front of the boxwood beside the driveway. This Japanese Iris is the deepest purple I have ever seen. You think it was the sage?
There was a small patch of these between the house and the cabin and I have successfully put them all around the yard, plus shared them with a cousin in Texas, SIL in Mississippi, our neighbor and the Church of the Resurrection on Sneed Road. When they bloom, they are usually a light purple with a blue tinge. I have a really big bed of them between the two American Holly trees near the kitchen and I can look off the porch and will see a sea of purple soon. Also, Mimi will be able to roll her walker out on the porch and peek off at them.
The Kitty Justice is the first flower of any species give me the biggest thrill. I picked this one and put it on the kitchen table for a surprise for Mimi.
