First Iris of 2009
Last week I had to use last year's iris for purple day but that reminded me to check my iris daily for blooms. Yesterday when the sprinkling rain stopped I was rewarded by my first iris of 2009.My favorites are the dutch iris with their light blue petals and yellow stripe. The first one almost looks dark blue in the light I photographed it, but they are all purple except for the light blue and yellow one. I think the first one looks a bit like a cat.If you look near the bottom to the left of the shot above, the buds are popping up and soon the whole patch will be awash with iris.I guess that will be it. Not much to say but I couldn't restrain my enthusiasm over my first iris of the season.
