Purple Iris

All of my irises have a memory attached.  These beauties were brought to me by my oldest son and his wife just before they moved out of the first house.  This is only their second season in the ground, and they are already blooming so well - in each place I planted them!  So, today I am painting them in ink and watercolor, but perhaps I'll try them in oil before they fade. A few of my iris blooms were nipped in that long hard freeze we had in April, so there are fewer irises in my garden this year.  It makes me appreciate these all the more!  Painting number 3055 in 3055 days.
