Something a Little Different

Regular wine postings will return soon but I took the camera along on a walk through a tall grass prairie and a pond this morning and the iris flowers, some wild and some domestic, were putting on a show.

The first one is a small, white wild iris near the edge of the pond.

Next up are two domestic plants, a large bearded white iris and a purple and white iris.

And finally two wild and controversial ones, yellow flag iris.  As pretty as they are they are considered an invasive species that are harmful to animals, though they still show up as ornamental plants around ponds.  Beautiful nonetheless.

There will be wine with dinner tonight so expect that tomorrow.
