Greatly inspired by a favorite Seattle blogger , this image is one of many taken of a most photogenic bloom, the Iris. Some like the orchid. I love the Iris. These have been in the family for years.
“Lily Was Here” played in the wind while shooting these photos last year. I was barefoot standing on the warm earth while stepping around shadows during the late afternoon. My cold glass of sweet tea sparkled by the condensation that had formed. The snowcat tiptoed through the flowerbed gingerly sniffing the narrow space between the rows of Zinias. The rest of the world didn’t matter.
