Iris is One of a Gardener’s Elite Flowers
Glorious, magnificent spring gives us such beauty that we sometimes have no choice but to write something poetic. Iris are especially compelling!
My Lovely Iris!
Iris, regal iris, magnificent creation,
Firm in self respect,
Symbolically presiding over your own nation.
Powerful yet delicate, gloriously detailed.
Each fair bloom bedecked
In colorful rainbow robes, no graceful charm curtailed.
Iris, lovely iris, magnificent creation,
A royal object
Speaking the Creator’s natural revelation.

Poetic Iris is a Photogenic Plant!
Easy to care for, therefore, easy to love, iris is a plant that almost grows itself. If you haven't established a bed of poetic iris yet, you might like to make doing so a priority.
Rewarding a gardener with luscious blooms that have amazing variety in color, this plant also presents photographers with a chance to build a stock of stunning pictures.
I hope you enjoy some of mine. If you like them you might like to keep in mind that I’m planning to add more shots from my iris beds over time, and perhaps from friends’ gardens.
