Photo hunt ~In Memory

The photo hunt this week is 'In Memory'.
This is a tough word choice this close to Mother's Day, because of course it brings to my mind my own Mom.
It is impossible to narrow it down to one photo.
So I picked one that represents so many things. These irises have moved with me to at least 5 different homes. They are from Mom's garden in Auburn. I smile every spring when they show their delicate blooms.They remind me of purple butterflies!
Happy hunting y'all!
Sandi

Beautiful irises and a wonderful way to remember your mother. My mom loved yellow roses and I planted a yellow rose bush in my garden which makes me think of my mother.

Sandi, I am so envious that you had the foresight to take plants from moms garden and then move them with you each time! I would love to have a memory like that for my mom, whom my post is about, along with my recently passed brother...those Iris's are just gorgeous! My hunt is up please come and visit soon
