Iris

These are all full sized irises,

taken in various gardens while I was on my travels last week.

The buds are often different from the open blossoms.

This last shot is almost an abstract impression of irises.

your lovely shots have reminded me to go out and look at mine - just in bud, but not long now. Helen x www.happinesskindled.blogspot.com

Those are gorgeous photos, I love seeing the flowers close up, they look so different from seeing them afar off.

The iris blossoms are so lovely.

I wish the weather wasn't so warm right now. I feel like spring is quickly fading!
