Iris Season!

Everyone is asking "are you enjoying our Spring weather?" After an early spring thaw and warm weather in April, it has been cool and wet here lately, but has finally settled into the mid-70s. But the amazing display we're seeing upon our arrival here is the wide variety of Iris flowers currently at the peak of their bloom. The word itself is from the Greek word for "rainbow", referring to the wide variety of colors they display. That is sure true, because all of the pics here were taken today within a few minutes drive of our place here. Because of their hardy perennial show, they are a standard addition to the Midwestern garden. Enjoy the show!
