Flowers From Our Yard: Blatant Iris



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

The days are getting cooler here on the Plateau in Tennessee, and we've had frost advisories at night. The trees are beginning to show autumn color, and we have iris in bloom. This picture of our Blatant Iris was taken last Friday.

George, enjoy the season change and your pretty flowers. We are not having any thing like that here. It is below 100 tho.

Just on Friday! Gosh, it has been really cold here for days. There have been no irises (iri?) here for a very long time. This is one of your prettiest!!! And I'm being blatant about that. Your Painted Desert from Monday is strangely beautiful, looks like another planet.
