As a young artist I always loved the iris' color and petal shapes. I often made drawings and paintings of irises, and I remember spending long hours trying to create the image of an iris in enamel on copper. I have a number of different wonderful iris plants in the garden and I thank my wonderful brother for giving me some tiny bright purple ones (not pictured) and Teresa for the other large ones (I have photographed). And thanks to April for actually posing for the camera.
