My World: Tennessee Vols

Tennessee Vol Iris, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. May 8, 2010.

This is my post for the My World meme.  It is hosted by Klaus, Ivar, Sandy, Wren, and Fishing Guy.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

When Betsy and I got home from the beach this past weekend, we found many of our iris in bloom.  We have several different varieties, but the iris pictured above is Betsy’s special iris.  As you probably know, Betsy is a die-hard fan of the University of Tennessee.  She does a pretty good job of keeping her emotions under control, except during football season.   During football season she bleeds orange.  So when I saw that there was an iris called Tennessee Vol, I knew I just had to get it for her.

Go Vols!
