Happy Mother's Day mom! I know irises are your favorite. I made this iris is just for you. I love you so much. Thank you for making me who I am (and for making me in the first place!!) Thanks for loving me. Thank you for giving me the gift of confidence and strength. Now that I have my own children, my respect for you has multiplied exponentially!! How in the world did you do so much!! You truly are my super hero.
I love you mom!
P.S. Did you know the fleur de lis design is an iris?
Here is an extreme close up. The base is the gorgeous OPI Jade Is The New Black. The stem is Pure Ice wild thing and Orly Enchanted Forest. The flower is Diamond Cosmetics Not Your Hum Drum Plum and Orly Charged Up. The black, white and yellow are stripers.
Here is a picture of irises from the burpee catalog online.
