Irises

There's a purple corner in my mother's garden that makes me smile to see it because purple is, of course, my favourite colour. Among the flowers are these irises:

To the left of the irses is a climbing vine of clematis and just to the right is a young lilac bush. I didn't know that irises were so fragrant until my mother called me out last night all excited with their lovely scent.

It's silly, but when I see irises, I can't help but think of the hoity-toity iris in Disney's Alice in Wonderland....
