Multicolor Iris

After serving breakfast, I went outside to do some yard work and realized that I just had to take some photos first. The one below is my favorite of the morning. Unfortunately, I don’t know the name of this variety of iris, but up close and in the right light it is utterly striking. And now, I must get back to weeding. Have a lovely day!

Irises in Morning Light

Anyone who visits us around this time of year is sure to observe that I am a big fan of irises.  This morning before breakfast the morning light on the garden was so beautiful, I had to run outside and take a few pictures.  As chance would have it, I happened upon what I think was a male Cloudless Sulphur Butterfly – any lepidopterists out there, please correct me if I am wrong – enjoying the flowers as well.
