Stuck in the past

I've been digging through boxes of family memories the last couple days. I am still trying and failing to find the 1 photo I'm after. I've found every other possible item, but it. I'm ready to admit defeat.

I drug myself away this evening to go ditch digging with Matthew and Mom. We got some more colors of iris we don't have, I didn't think it would be possible, but it was. We probably have around 40 varieties of iris now.

Matthew and I added some whimsy to the garden this morning. Photos to follow later!

Is it anything I might have a copy of?

No, Auntie, unfortunately not. I am looking for a professional photo of Dad on the racer in '54. As far as he knows, there is only 1 in existence...but thank you for offering to join the merry search!

I have been dead-heading my Classic iris. (deep purple/blue, with lighter blue) They are doing as well as the jonquils didn't.
My niece, the Iris maven!

LOL- I agree with Auntie; so how many of these new irises are coming my way??? I have cleared some weeds out around some trees so there is space. BTW your irises which never bloom out by the propane tank, yup :) burgandy is the only way to describe them. I have pics and will be posting them this week.
