Field of Flowers

Iris flowers, that is. Down the road a few miles from us is a field of irises. I'd seen it on previous furloughs but had never stopped to visit it in the Spring when it is in full bloom. This year I made it a point to do that and, of course, took several photos. I tried to take some of each color that they had but probably missed a few. It was all so lovely-the kind of scene that would inspire poets, artists and lovers.
I do think my favorite is the frilly pink one! What about you? And I added in the light purple one at the middle bottom of the photo. This is in the yard of a daughter who lives next door.

        I will praise Thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all Thy marvellous works.
                                                                            (Psalm 9:1)


  1. Jeg kom bare lige forbi.
    Gode billeder af de mange smukke iris blomster.
    En fryd for øjet.
    Tak for kigget.
    Ha´ en god Pinsedags aften.

  2. A very beautiful sight Rena. I especially like your last photo. Must have been wonderful to take time to enjoy the irises.

    Thank you for you comment on my blog. Bananas are a major crop in Queensland, our north eastern state. The town an hour's south of where we currently live is about their southern limit. The bananas in tropical Queensland grow bigger and quicker than ours did but ours had lots of flavour. Our only years of financial abundance were when the bananas in Queensland were wiped out in the occasional severe tropical cyclone/hurricane. Prices rose sharply at this time, and so did our income.
