Flowers From Our Yard: Cantina Iris



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

This week a flower stalk on our Cantina Iris decided to put on one more show for us. I like the overall purple of this blossom, but am intrigued by the touch of gold and splash of blue in the falls. Cantina should bloom again in October, so hopefully she'll put on another show for us.
