Have been meaning to post, think of things while walking to the bus stop.
Write on back of old envelope that has days to do list, just other
things get prioritized, like eating...
When look out window have seen this iris for last month. Call it root beer Iris, for it fragrance, not its color. Is a nice purple and lavender with tiger like area on fuzzy area of the falls.
Will go take a photo of it later. Seems to matter what time of day and temperature as to how it
smells of old iris or root beer . Blooms in April, single bloomer (one time a year), from
older then 1920's. Have donated many of these to others in different places I lived.
Reminds me of the sweet violets had in yard as a kid, my mother got them from someone in their 60's
who got them from her mother in Ohio. I even cooked the leaves for a vegatable for dinner after reading Euell Gibbons from the library. Think Mom and I were only ones willing to try them. 
Went back to the old house and all were removed and side yards cemented in for their boats , cars and assorted.
