Betsy's Favorite Iris

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

It's sometimes difficult to pin Betsy down as to what her favorite is when it comes to some of our flowers.  But there is no doubt that her favorite iris is Tennessee Vol.  I'm not sure if she's attracted mostly by the name or by the color, but in any case it's a beautiful iris.

With all the beauty she is surrounded by I can understand how it would be to pick just one. This is definitely a gorgeous one. Such a vibrant color. Glad to see you today. I was starting to wonder, as you had not posted in a few days.

I have a hard time deciding on which flower is my favorite. I'm thinking it is probably whichever one happens to be in bloom and whichever one I happen to be looking at :)

I have to agree with Betsy. And in the center, it looks like a pipe cleaner! Or a fuzzy caterpillar.

I think Betsy favors it not only for its name and beautiful color, but also because you planted it George.

I like the delicate frill of the edge of the petals - - but orange irises aren't that common so it is a good choice for favorite.
