Celebrating the Beautiful Iris!
Did you know that May 8th is Iris Day? And since May is also National Photography month, it's a natural to put the two together. I can see why May has a day just for iris, as their beauty cannot be missed! The bearded iris is most intriguing, with their bristly colors perfectly complementing the iris ~ ahh, shall we take a walk?
