Bloom Day: Irises!

It's once again time for May Dreams Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.  Follow the link to see what's blooming this month all over the world.

In my part of the world I have (from top left and down) Steenbergii Cornflowers, Lavender, Hens and Chicks, a few pea blossoms, some Irises, and broccoli.

Incidentally, I planted the Irises--a pass along from an old co-worker--two years ago, and this is the first year they've bloomed.  I didn't think I was a fan of Irises, but they're so pretty up close, and they smell so wonderful!
