Iris danfordiae

Iris danfordiae (Iris danfordiae (Iris))

planted this early Iris as a grave marker for my daughter's hamster that died at the weekend. :o(
Every pet that dies gets buried with a favourite plant so I dont dis-inter them by mistake.

All our animals have had plants where they were buried it's a nice thing to do , my granddaughters school blazer fell over her hamsters cage at the weekend and it ate a huge hole in it ,my daughter wasn't very happy she had to go out to buy a new blazer :o(
