    Default More spring blooms

    Another couple of iris and the "red" columbine, which is really a deep pink, fading as the blossom ages.

    I love this iris, it looks like a rose in the center, plus the new bud coming up next to the bloom. The light was so bright, it is hard to see that this one has white petals with a yellow edge.

    This is a lovely dark iris, the blooms are small this year because it is pot bound and is not very happy.
