Shades of purple

The top 2 iris were taken from John and Lindsey's first yard.
(They weren't into flowers, so I got lots!!!!)

This 3rd photo is the same one that I bought as a pink iris,

that I showed a macro of yesterday.

Notice the last photo has my first American Painted Lady butterfly of 2009.
By the time I got my lens changed he was gone, so I was glad I snapped this one.

Love all of the Irises, Leedra---and of course that butterfly is an added attraction. The first Iris looks almost blue. Gorgeous!!!

Hope you are having a great weekend in Rockwood.
Hugs,
