  1. The iris has always been one of my favourite flowers but you have introduce me to so many other amazing species. I don’t know anymore… I love them all, even the one that are less colourful such as the peculiar corybas and the pustulata. But the pink Romulea and Hesperantha humilis are so stunning! Your pics are very beautiful too. I wonder what the scent of these plants is like? Perhaps this could be a topic for a futur post: The best scented flowers in my garden. I mean your garden of course because mine is still cover with snow.

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment Dominique. I really like the idea about a post on scent as it is especially important to me in a garden.
      Oddly enough – none of the above really have a noticeable scent (at least to me). I suspect the Scilla might so I will have a sniff next time I am home in daylight.

    1. I’d like to do that too Linda. It is called retirementπŸ˜€πŸ˜‰πŸ’•
      I honestly forget what I have sometimes. I have been known to buy the same thing twice, or a first flower appears on something I planted years ago and forgot about. And I have a good memory!

    1. Thank you LisaπŸ˜„. I have grown the Hesperantha for ten years and this is the first time I ever saw a flower actually open. It only opens in warm sunshine which is a rarity here in february!
