A bloom not quite open yet, the same iris fully open.
Notice the color change.
Then I decided to get up close, like I tend to do.
This iris was bought as a pink iris. Not!
Everybody wants to get a pink, the next one I bought as a pink turned out to be peachy. I should learn my lesson and give up on a pink iris.

The last macro doesn't even look like an iris. The iris bloom is so large that it just fell open, and this is the inside of the bloom.

Amazing photos Leedra. Don't think I've seen a pink iris either!

I agree with Mildred - both accounts! I think all of mine are yellow.

I love all the irises--they are amazing. (I'm looking at the photos below also.)

Wonderful! My favorite is that reddish-purple colored one! I'd love to have those. I like any shade of purple. That top one is beautiful in both colors!

Absolutely gorgeous Leedra. They have the prettiest colors and are wonderfully sharp close-ups.

P.S. I'm going to be in Tennessee in mid-June. Greg has a customer that we have to visit. Do you live close to Betsy?
