April Showers of Photos: April 19 Iris
So delicate and special....the iris. I love the variety of colors you can paint your garden with by planting different shades of irises. This one is one of my favorites.
The Handbook of Nature Study, page 573
"Each iris flower has three side doors leading to the nectar-wells; and the bees, in order to get to the nectar, must brush off the pollen dust on their backs."
Look at that color!
Or how about this one for a totally different look to the same kind of flower? Can you imagine anything being so pretty?
This is one iris I need to have in my garden.
