One of my Favorite Flowers...







"'Tis my faith that every flower 
Enjoys the air it breathes!"
William Wordsworth



This Iris is long gone...
the shot is one from my archives...
actually...
it's one of the first I took (and kept)
after I got my first dslr camera...

(With a little tweaking!)

  4. They are one of my favourites too.....I collect them.....sometimes in the dead of night if certain people aren't willing to share ;) Just kidding.....but I do buy every different one I can find, and have thought about the dead of night thing too.

  6. That iris is definitely a keeper! «Louis'» mother loved iris and planted them in every flower bed in every house «Louis» lived in growing up.

  7. I like irises, too, though only the ones this color. I love flowers in that color anyway!
