Irises: “Like blown glass…”

“…We had the irises, rising beautiful and cool on their tall stalks, like blown glass, like pastel water momentarily frozen in a splash, light blue, light mauve, and the darker ones, velvet and purple, black cat’s ears in the sun, indigo shadow…”  (Margaret Atwood)

 

Our first iris is still blooming…

Still blooming

And now we have more.  Such a change from last year when none of the irises bloomed at all.
