Last week, several tornadoes came within a couple of miles of my home. We were without power for days, but our family, home, and friends were all spared. So many people lost so much. After the power was restored, a sweet friend of mine gave me some irises from her garden, and I wanted to share a few shots of them. She also gave me some gorgeous peonies, so I'll have to do another post on them soon. Flowers are always beautiful, but they mean so much more when they're given with love. :) Enjoy!
