Wordless Wednesday: Purple Bearded Iris

Purple Bearded Iris Photo
"Thou art the Iris, fair among the fairest,
Who, armed with golden rod
And winged with the celestial azure, bearest
The message of some God."

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

  1. My irises barely bloomed this year. They were in my yard for maybe a week in February.

  20. what a pretty one. we have 2 huge clumps of Iris' from hubby's aunt before they moved from their old home into a new one. they bloom a bit later in the year. lots of leaves are poking up through last years mess, so I am not worried about them making it. Yes we are great minds ;o)
