Iris persica - Nevruz, Nevruz Çiçegi [TR] is a beautiful flowered herb from the family IRIDACEAE (LILIALES). Its flowering time is March-April. It is found in stony open areas and under Pinus trees at the altitude of 100-1650 m a.s.l.
This perennial plant is an element of Iran-Turan Flora subregion. It is also known from south, southeastern Turkiye, northern Syria, northeastern Irak. In Turkiye, it has been recorded from Adıyaman, Bingöl, Diyarbekir, Elazığ, Erzincan, Gaziantep, Hatay, Konya, Malatya, Mardin, Mersin, Niğde, Osmaniye, and Şırnak provinces (B7, B8, C5, C6, C7, C8, C9 grids of Davis).

Nevruz refers two kind of words and both of them related each other. One of them is a National Festival of Nevruz Bayramı of Turks of Azebaidjan, Cyprus, Turkmenia, Turkiye, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhistan, Albania and other Turks. It is spelled as "Nevruz" in Turkiye, "Novruz" in Azerbaidjan, "Navrız meyrami (Наурыз мейрамы)" in Kazakhistan, "Nooruz" in Kyrgyzistan, "Mart dokuzu" in Turkish Rep. of in Northern Cyprus, "Navrez" by Crimean Turks, "Mevris" by Western Thracian Turks and "Sultan Nevruz" by Albanian Turks.
Second meaning show this plant species on the post and it is one of the symbols of Nevruz Festival, regarded as start of Spring.
By the way, I celebrate Nevruz Bayramı for all Turkish people and relatives.

Merhaba Ahmet hocam,

Baharın müjdecisi olduğu her halinden belli.
Çok güzel bu çiçek türünü çok başarılı görüntülemişsiniz.
Elinize ve emeğinize sağlık.

Selam ve saygılarımla,

Hocam Çok güzel olmuş. Küçükken bu zamanlarda toplamaya çıkardık dağlara özellikle tam açmak üzere olanını arar buluncada deliler gibi sevinirdik.Adına da sivri olduğu için kalem derdik. Soğanını ve çiçeğini önce suya koyar ,solmaya başlamadan yerdik. Tabi gene gördükçe yiyorum :)) Bu uzun yorumdan sonra 21 Mart Baharın Müjdecisi NEVRUZ BAYRAMI'nız kutlu olsun.

Merhaba hocam

Baharın müjdecileri Iris'i çok güzel resimlemişiniz. Bu nedenle başta Irisler olmak üzere diğer tüm geofitleri çok severim. Hepsi yeni bir başlangıcın en iyi örnekleri diye düşünüyorum. Tüm detayları ile harika görünüyor. Ellerinize ve emeğinize sağlık.TFS

hello Ahmet
beautiful Iris with great details of the hole plant and great sharpness

A beautiful flowering plant made more so by your perfect low-angle shot Ahmet, the fuzzy BG nicely compliments the delicate curves and contrasty colouration of the flower. Excellent job MF!

Salam Akhi Prof. Ahmet,
well taken in its wild environment. the colour is so special, and i havent seen any of like this before. You have shown it very well especially the centre petal which shows different colours in a great detail.
It is such a lone one, aa I notice there is no any other plants around it.
Very well shown nature path.

regards,
Foozi

Tremenda belleza en esta toma Ahmet !!!

Quizás algo desvirtuada por esos colores que le dan un aspecto mortecino, pero sin duda de una gran belleza.

hello my friend Ahmet,

"keep photographing!" TFS

Hello Ahmet,
I must admit I'm getting a little jealous of all these beautiful flowering plants I see posted on TN as of lately. We must be way behind the rest of the world as far as spring, because everything is still brown and gray here in Ohio except for the grass.
A beautiful bloom shown with pleasing natural colors and composed nicely. Love the blurred BG and good exposure. Great photo!!
Ron

Hy Ahmet
Very interesting iris, never seen before. The ground-color of the petals probably make this flower nor very easy to see.
Excellent iamge and details!
Kind regards,
Oana

Hi Ahmet,
