This is Blake standing in front of some old machinery next to our house. Excuse his messy face, he just enjoyed a choc icecream.
The irises behind him, which are in flower, are amazing. Why … because years ago, people before us had actually collected them from our local tip where they were growing wild.
They were transplanted to our place (which was just a rental property at that time) and I eventually put some around the machinery to try and pretty them up.
They never get watered, they just take care of themselves and still manage to flower. I love plants that are easy to grow.
