My grandmothers favorite flower was the iris. My grandparents lived on a small farm in New Virginia, Iowa. I remember the lane that lead up to their house was a long gravel road completely lined with iris on both sides, behind them were lilac bushes, her other favorite flower. I just remember driving up the driveway and being greeted by all of these beautiful flowers of yellow, and purple. So here’s to my grandmother and all of the other MOM’s.
