Flowers in Season. Flowers of a pretty Iris, the petals being a delicate shade of mauve, are sent by Mr. Amos Perry, Enfield, with the following note : " I am sending you a few flowers of Iris Mrs. Alan Gray, a pretty. hybrid raised by the late Sir Michael Foster', which has the unique character of flowering at intervals throughout the season. I exhibited flowers of this Iris at the R.H.S. show at Westminster last September; this year it has been flowering since the last week in May."
