Chocolate Iris – a beauty

My daughter brought this with her when she moved her things to Michigan from Arkansas. She got it from a neighbor who called it a chocolate iris. I have been not-so-patiently waiting for it to bloom after moving it next to the orange iris last year.

To really appreciate its beauty, view it as a slide show by clicking on any photo. I am really enjoying my 50mm primary lens. All of these were taken with it.

  1. Looks more like red velvet to me 😉
    Irises have long been a favorite of mine. I think it’s something to do with how delicate and intricate they look, and their fragrance is unrivaled!

  2. These are beautiful, Pat! I wanted to paint irises this year, but we were on a boat trip during the couple of weeks when they were blooming in my garden. (I did cut some and take them on the boat with us, but the light and motion never cooperated for me to paint.)
