Iris Rover...

The Iris are in bloom here and I've been roving around taking pictures both at my home and at a local place that specializes in Iris.
These tall purple ones have been with me for years. They are ready to be split up again. 
 They were falling over and laying on the driveway so I had to give them some help with some stakes.
 Before the opened I caught this picture ...it 
looks like satin!

These Orange Harvest Iris look great this year.  
I lucked out with a few good shots-
I forgot I had my camera set on "aperture priority" 
which in this case made for an interesting shot!
This is my favorite one!

Our trip out to The Iris Farm was enjoyable
I felt lucky to get the pictures I did because I used my iPhone and the sun was so bright I couldn't make out the screen, so I was really shooting blindly!

So many to chose from, hard to make a decision! 






 It was a beautifully clear bright sunny day, 
low humidity, moderate temperatures.  
Mind boggling!

Back home, my Siberian Iris are about ready 
to open too!  
Look at the size of that Sum and Substance hosta to the left of the fairy.  It's really taken off this year! The Great Expectations Hosta is just left of it and there is a pair of Hanky Panky Hosta's in front of her. Those are Bright Lights, hosta on the right side.

So that my Iris roving tour!

 Have a happy Sunday and a great week!
