    Imagine my surprise today when I went to the side yard and discovered the first Iris bloom of the season -- at least a month ahead of schedule. :D

    I'm overjoyed because to me the Iris is the poor man's orchid.

    BTW: The white spots are water drops from the sprinkler.

    Nice shot. I don't really know much about flowers and when they bloom, but I am suprised to hear it's happening already, we're still covered in snow up here.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    The splash of colour my eyes are craving!
    Thank you so much.
    It will take my irises a good four to five more months to come out and present themselves in their beauty...
