Iris

Bet you thought I fell off the face of the earth! Actually, my daughter and her husband have bought a new house--- so new, in fact, that it isn't completely finished. Activity levels are at a new high around here trying to get their move together. What a lucky grandma I am as they will be even closer!

After complaining about the long winter, the spring is more than making up for the cold. I'd like to share a bunch of iris photos with you are the iris are just stunning this year. Here goes!

You're right... the iris ARE stunning! WOW!!!! Just gorgeous. I love your photos. They have a Georgia O'Keefe quality to them. I get to see details, shapes and forms that I normally wouldn't get to see.

Hugs,

I LOVE your irises! I keep telling my husband I want to plant some, but we never seem to get to it! I am definitely going to buy some!

Thanks for the walk through your garden!

I'm actually GASPING at how pretty these flowers are. You've so gotten the hang of this photography thing, haven't you? Are you up to giving lessons? lol
