Irises remind me of my Mom, and not just because they bloom around Mother's Day.  She was an artist who painted landscapes and nudes in oil and watercolors, and made linoleum block prints of flowers.  My favorites are the prints of irises hand tinted in different colors.  My front yard is bursting with irises now so I put a bunch in a vase, then painted them bursting out of the canvas.
