LeenaM said...

thank you for these beautiful flowers,those colors are just the fact, what we need in these days, when we get still more and more snow. Fortunately days are lighter now despite clouds and longer too.

Have a great Wednesday, Sue!

I like your iris picture, but I LOVE the two for the Blue Angels. I fly a little airplane and love to see the flight teams perform. - Margy

This is so exciting, I photographed wild irises when I was in Florence last month! They grow wild in the olive groves and meadows in the San Polo in Chianti area, very close to Florence.

Beautiful! Are these wild irises?

Your post made me want to finally join in the ABC Wednesday fun! I posted about wild irises in the Tuscan hills on my little sidekick, Strawberry Fields! :-)

It's hard to believe you're getting flowers like this already! I love the color.

Annie said...

In just a couple or three weeks I shall have iris blooming in my garden. I planted both Japanese and flag iris and the first blooms before the next, giving me time to completely enjoy the beauty.

Beautiful shot.

sure makes me long for a site like that here in Chicago.

Seems like Spring doesn't want to show up here.
