The Pleasure of the Iris

Yesterday was a treat. Wandering about the garden early, I noticed that one of my favourite iris had shed it's paper skin and was about to bloom. A few hours later it was starting to unfold. So every 2 or 3 hours I would take another shot as I watched her open. What was also so thrilling was how the color changed through out the day. Hard to believe this is the same plant, just the light has changed, as she moves through purple to deep periwinkle to more magenta and back to purple. A great day.
