I have an inquiring mind... I would like to inquire something of you.

Given that you might be a gardener, or at least appreciative of gardens and gardeners; 1) What is your favorite flowering plant?  and 2)  Can you think of a good one that begins with I?

I do have Iris

Those blue ones are gorgeous. I'm no gardener but the wild ones growing by water are always a treat to see.

Beautiful gardens! Love the blue irises.

Your irises are gorgeous. The Mama and I finally got a few growing in the backyard.

My favorite is the sweet pea. I can't think of any "i" flower but iris. :-)
