    Great pics everyone, spring is by far my favorite season. Unfortunately it is short-lived here, temps are all ready getting into the mid 80s F. Here are a couple of pictures of a Bearded Iris growing in my yard.

    I think this is fragrant Caprifoliaceae - honeysuckle family, the flowers are bell-like shaped and smell really divine

    Exactly right, Branka! I believe they grow wild here, because I see them in bloom everywhere! They smell so good. Your close-ups capture them perfectly...Thanks...Betty :-)
