iris and june

 Well we didn't have to wait too long.
Thank goodness for the sun,
it could easily have been a damp squib of a flower.
So what do you think?
 I have to say I was a tiny bit underwhelmed that it wasn't very showy
(compared to cultivars)
but to be truthful I placed it next to the pond
where I'm creating a wilder look..
so natural is good.
I think this may be the start of a new love affair..
I can hear you say what with Mr frog?
haha very funny!

On writing this post 
seeing the photos en-masse
I cant help thinking they remind me 
of a certain painting by a certain Vincent...
*Iris Germanica
