The irises this year bloomed exactly a week earlier than in 2013. That is interesting.
The iris is a damn seductive flower, almost tawdry in its wilting, rich, dark petals dropping down (2014).
This was shot in my front yard, which is now covered with these amazing flowers (2014).
Irises give tulips a damn good run for the money. I wonder what pollinators think? They probably love those pollen rich pistils to get all crazy about and do the pollen dance.
