Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

So Dark Purple, it's Almost Black, Iris




Well, almost black.  If you have not seen the bud before it opens into this dark beauty, be sure to visit Reflections From the Fence.  The bud does look almost black.

I love the purple background, classy. Thanks too for the info. about the Mugo Pine Trees, not sure if they are grown around here.

What a lovely flower. I have NEVER seen one so dark. Actually, I think I killed all my iris--I need to purchase some new ones.

Beautiful photos, Carol! My grandmother grew iris, so they always remind me of her.
