Lively Irises



With Easter so late this year, irises were the main attraction in my in-law's yard over the weekend. Here are a few of the stars ready for their close-up.












In the spring a livelier iris changes on the burnished dove;
In the spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.


-- Lord Alfred Tennyson
