When we bought our house, Lucy and I decided that we would only have edible plants. At that time our idea of edible plants were things like fruit trees, herbs, vegetables, and edible flowers. Now our idea of edible has been extended to include plants that are food for the soul. Irises are in this category. . . especially irises that bloom more than once a year. Thanksgiving is only two days away, and I give thanks that there are still irises blooming around our house.
