Well, Kathy and Carl have finally done it! They now have something even better than a warm, soft kitty to cuddle in their arms.They now have a beautiful daughter named “Iris Magdalen.” She was born on March 2 at around 7:30 pm, weighed 8 pounds, 11 ounces, 22 inches long, and perfect in every way!I’ve been thinking about some of my favorite places and the irises I’ve seen there. For example, don’t you love the colors and form of this iris at the Dolphin Resort in Disney? How about this rich copper-colored cluster blooming on Mackinac Island?I found this gem blooming at Powerscourt Gardens in Ireland last spring,and this gorgeous iris was adorning a cottage garden at Bunratty Castle. There were clumps of golden iris blooming along the banks where we strolled between Upper and Lower Slaughter in the Cotswolds last May.But, I think my favorite irises are the ones that bloom in our front yard!Of course, my all-time favorite Iris in all the world is the one blooming in Kathy and Carl’s arms!
