FIRST IRISES

The first irises are up and blooming.

This was a nice, fat, bud yesterday morning.

It was half open when I got home last night, and fully open this morning. We had rain today and the blossoms were still drippy when I took the pictures.

This is a smaller iris. Maybe eighteen inches or so compared to the better than three feet of the impressive bearded iris on the other side of the yard.

Absolutely stunning. Absolutely. Thank you, oh Creator.

The Iris is my all-time favorite flower!  They are beautiful and yet also 'sad' to me....why, I don't know.  They make me feel melancholy.  I'm odd.

We have irises blooming here, too. I like the smaller ones the best. Pretty. --Cin
