|This is the first purple double-bearded iris to bloom on our property this spring. They are beautiful specimens that bring peace and serenity wherever they are. They spring from bulbs which divide twice each year and require virtually NO attention. After blooming just give them a couple of weeks and mow them down with the rest of the lawn! Subtle and undemanding facets of nature, as well as elegant and graceful. Irony at it's best - beautiful iris backdropped by poison ivy....Missouri, you've got to love it. Hope you enjoy, I think it is gorgeous.|

Beautiful colors. I think the background is as pretty, if not more, than the iris itself. I love the green ivy next to the dark black/white/brown tree bark. And with the beautiful iris in front ot it, it's just gorgeous. Too bad the iris is so out of focus. You might want to invest in a tripod if you don't have one, I got mine at Wal-Mart for only twenty bucks. Works great for pictures like these, as long as the wind isn't kicking everything around.
