Iris Lacustris Alzheimer Quilt

What is Dwarf Lake Iris?
Dwarf Lake Iris is a minature iris with showy deep blue flowers.  They only grow around the Great Lakes shorelines in cool, moist lakeshore air.  Their habitat has been greatly reduced so that they have been added to the endangered list.

This is much like protecting our love ones who have Alzheimers.  We change their environment to keep them from harm.  We try to stimulate their memory and as they slip away all we can do is to love them.
