Wordless Wednesday

This is an iris in my mother's home (photo by my father):

It was given to her by a friend, and I'm hoping to get one when it makes little babies (apparently when a flower blooms, it becomes a new offshoot of the original plant). I know nothing about this iris but think it's absolutely amazing!


  1. It's such a beautiful, an unusual, iris! It almost reminds me of an orchid. I wish I could garden; alas, my talents lie more in reading and teaching. ;)

  2. That is one of the most unusual looking irises I have ever seen. You're right - it doesn't really even look like an iris. Beautiful, though.

  3. What an interesting orchid. They can be so unusually beautiful!! Thanks for the opportunity to share my blog link, hope you can stop by to do the same.
