Iris | Rainbow of Color

Two examples of Iris stopped me while out for a walk. The hundreds of hybrids provide color to the gardens of spring. Perhaps named after the Goddess Iris. Whatever the origin, the sun was high and dark bushes set a proper background of contrast. It invited photographs.

My route brought me by a small retention pond in the neighborhood. At water’s edge were patches of these yellow Iris pseudacorus. They are native to Europe, northern Africa, and temperate Asia.

    Iris are amazing flowers for sure! A few of ours flowered well but most of them didn’t. Maybe because we didn’t have much rain this spring. I did get some photos but I haven’t posted them yet. GEEZ! Thanks for sharing the AWESOME photos!
