Fleur de Lis

One of my favorite flowers, iris.

I'm quite partial to these little "Dutch" iris, of course: such an intense shade of purple! (Although a neighbor round the corner has full-size purple-and-whites that are absolutely stunning...)

And the seed pods are really neat, too.

These pale by comparison (I don't actually try for bad puns, honest) but they have an aroma reminiscent of grapes…

[These photos were to be taken with the point-and-shoot but the dranglefabbing camera quit again when I tried. *sigh*]
