I just love irises, they are one of my favourite plants. I remember when we moved into our first home, it was just a plot and didn't even have grass! We thinned out some of the many different types of irises at my old work and suddenly, my garden was an explosion of colour!

Oh, pretty irises, Joanne! I like the line markings and spot of yellow on each petal.

It is so nice to see such beautiful flowers, and so close. I've enjoyed watching them at full size. Cheers!

My favorite floral bouquet is purple irises with yellow roses - I've never gotten them from anyone but I do, occasionally, buy them for myself ( back in the era when I got substantial paychecks! ).

Beautiful iris, I love that color. My irises are starting to bloom now, hopefully our winds today won't hurt them too much.

I really like these flowers. They have some of the most interesting shapes I've ever seen.
