Along the eastern side of our house, our land lady planted Beared Iris (Iris Germanica) a few years ago. This year they are finally blooming well and I'm surprised by some blossom patterns I've never seen before. I really like how they are all in the purple family.
This one below is very striking and is what inspired to me to get out the camera and start photographing.
And here is a one yet that has yet to open. I wonder if it will be like the others above or another variation.
