Remembering Mom: A Iris grows in my garden

My mother's name was Iris. She passed away last August and in remembrance I planted a iris in my garden. I also planted irises years ago outside her apartment and she loved to look at them each spring. So you could say this was to be the last iris I planted for mom.
I have a few irises in my garden scattered around, all of them iris blue in color. So when my irises started to come up this Spring I couldn't remember where I had planted this "special" iris. I recently weeded my garden and accidentally a few were removed so I thought I might never see this particular iris. But today there it was standing tall majestically by itself, the only one that was cream and burgundy! And it made me smile
