I’ve had weeks of beautiful colour and shape from these irises, which look purple against some colours and yet look blue against others. Colours are funny like that. Time of day also has an influence in how colours show, and every person perceives colour differently. In any case, I adore these flowers.
The other day we were expecting inclement weather, so I had picked a vase full of irises in case they were spoilt by the rain. I am grateful that the blooms left in the garden held up so well during the downpour.
