Bearded Irises: White Standards, Purple Falls (3 of 3)

From “My Iris Friends” by Katherine Fellows, in Tall Bearded Iris (Fleur-de-lis): A Flower of Song by Walter Stager:

I am happier for their presence,
Groups of lavender and blue,
For their lavish gifts and treasure,
And their ways so fine and true —
Gifts of beauty without measure,
Gifts of fragrance all so rare;
And we thank the one who gives us
Glorious sunshine, flowers fair.


From the same place (Oakland Cemetery’s gardens) as the previous posts…

Bearded Irises: White Standards, Purple Falls (1 of 3), and

Bearded Irises: White Standards, Purple Falls (2 of 3)

… here are the last two galleries of white and purple irises on black backgrounds.



Thanks for taking a look!

      Yes, they’re great … and a lot of fun to photograph. I have one more batch to process and post — all blue! — then will wait and see if there are some summer bloomers ready to pose for my camera.

      Thanks for the comment!
