Flowers have always been a love of mine but my real appreciation of them came while working at a horticultural research station where I was exposed to many varieties of each. Irises stand out among others with their tall stalks and delicate petals. Esther Fay is my favourite. Its large flowers in shades of peach and dark orange beard make it a showy beauty admired by many.
