Wild Iris



These Dietes grandiflora or wild irises grow outside the front of our fence.
They look beautiful when they are in flower.
They looked great this afternoon in the late afternoon light.

  2. How perfectly lovely. You bring a touch of spring to my gray November day here in Ohio. And I agree with Becs - the first shot with the glowing light in the background is quite stunning.

  5. Leanne, I just love these, but for whatever reason, we just do not see them that often here. What a special treat!

    Thank you so much for sharing at The Creative Exchange today.

    Have a great evening!
