the coming of the irises

The first of the Iris to pop are these little Iris reticulata cultivars. Of course shooting them with a macro lens is great fun, but don't be fooled, these little fellas rarely get above 4-5" tall.

And it is well before the bigger iris get going, like these Iris pallida which will look fabulous mid to late summer when they begin to bloom atop this stunning variegated foliage. ...but that's what it's all about, the promise, the potential of what is to come.
