  4. Beautiful photo of one of my favorite irises.

    I found a clump of that exact iris on the side of the road (by I-95 and probably where a home had existed, now long torn down). Per my mom's advice, I always travel with a shallow bucket and trowel in the trunk of my car. Out I got, dug up part of it took it home and planted it at our home. She's still beautiful all these years later!

    Disclaimer: I never dig anywhere other than roadsides and like places. (i.e., no personal yards, cemeteries, etc. :-)!

  19. Beautiful; here the cemeteries has the most beautiful trees and plants, it is always a joy to take a walk there; I love the serenity and tranquility, despite the melancholy.

  20. What strikes me with Irises is that their petals if not only supple could be mistaken as orchids. I rarely see Iris outside the blue or purple colour.
