I See Irises

This photo contains 3 photos. Irises have been painted, become national flowers, put on flags, and even made into perfumes and medicines. All flowers here were photographed on June 7 at the UBC Botanical Garden. I have not seen yellow irises before, and these butter yellow ones with light green veining look amazing.

Yellow-Iris

Tricolor irises dappled with purple, white, and yellow, in various stages of bloom. I believe this is iris germanica. I could look at these flowers all day!

White-and-Purple-Iris

And a white iris — a little less showy than the above two, but not by much. 🙂
