Old Iris

I mentioned before that we inherited some old flowers when we moved here - forsythia, lilacs, peonies and some iris.    These are the iris.
Their flowers are smallish.   They're a cloudy purple with cloudy yellow contrasts.  On the modern iris scale, they're nothing much to get excited about.   

Until you smell them. 

They smell like distilled heaven.
And on the inside, they're amazing.
