An iris called Gordon


I bought these iris bulbs back in the autumn because of the name and the cheerful picture in the catalogue. Gordon is a friend's young son, and has the most delightful, sparkling smile you can imagine. This week, despite the snow, Gordon the iris appeared in the pots by my front door. I think this iris lives up to its namesake.
