40/52: the colour of irises

As I took these pictures, I was very aware that the irises were coming out a lot bluer than they were appearing to my eye. Not being very au fait with editing pictures, please just imagine all these to be a lot more purple than they seem.

    I have these in my garden also… transplanted many years ago, and over the course of three houses from my Mothers Garden to Mine. Where they still flourish. Love blooms eternally ! But, tis the Season. Just gave them a good haircut, and put to bed til next Spring. And, your pics turned out lovely.
