pale purple iris

This photo was taken in our backyard on a sunny spring morning after an overnight rain. It’s a close up of a pale purple iris that blooms every couple of years. We brought it with us when we moved to Iowa from Georgia. It always makes my heart happy when I see one of the rare blossoms. They are incredibly beautiful, both from a distance and up close – don’t you love the ‘tiger-like detail at its depths and the beard of white & yellow fuzz?
