So, Jane wants to know what we were like when we were very young.
This is the first known gardening photo of yours truly. Must have been May - you may guess what year. And, those are the small yellow iris that followed us from Grannie's house at Virginia Beach to our first house in Knoxville. [Yes, she preferred for 23 grandchildren to call her "Grannie" - OMG!!]
When she moved back to the Beach in retirement, Mother took some with her and eventually I had a fairly large clump at this house. Sadly, a very rainy winter rotted them all, and no one else in the family had saved any. Nowadays, the breeders are all going for large flowers, so you don't see the small ones around any more. A loss, I think.
You can see, tho, that the gardening bug was caught early. Thanks, Jane, for a good memory.
Now hop on over to Small, but Charming and see who else is willing to share a little bit of history with us this week.
