These irises have only just come into flower in the last day or two. I love them not only for their vivid purple colour, but for their amazing array of shapes and markings. I noticed that they have little, if any, scent, yet bees find their way quickly and unerringly to the centre of each bloom. Do they navigate by those markings, I wonder?It's kind to share!
I didn’t expect to be posting any more pictures like this, this year, but I found this last solitary bloom in my father’s garden, just a day or two ago. I never tire of indigo and magenta, somehow. I made it look like summer was leaving with quiet dignity.It's kind to share!
Hang on in there… I think spring might be coming! The first purple bud never fails to thrill me, every year!
