Many thanks, Sile - for your enchanting comment and welcome visit! Be well, dear friend :O)

Thank you so much, Cristiano - the sight of these iris added even more pleasure to a lovely trail walk through Sunset Beach/Shore Acres State Park! Best wishes :O)

Thank you for the lovely gift of a star, dear Nick - enjoy your spin, but don't lose your marbles :O)

Hi, Zbynda, and thanks! We had -5C temps for several nights (unusually cold for here), but the rain has warmed it back up to more normal again. Keep warm and happy holidays :O)

Oh Suz - this is a beautiful capture!! I am wondering if this is one of the Moraea family of wild irises? We have several Moraea species growing in the mountains around here, and they look very similar - and they are all so beautiful. I have a couple of photo's in my gallery under SA Wildflowers tag.

Thank you for sharing this beauty with us.

Warmest wishes to you, keep well, keep warm!

I don't think it is a Moraea Dietes type, dear Hazey, we call that lovely specimen African Iris, which I used to grow in California. This is closer to a miniature flag, Iris Versicolor?, which is often blue, and grows native along most of the US/Canada West Coast :O)

This is the best photo of our wild iris that I have ever seen! Very high quality... professional level.

Wow, thanks so much, Randall - Iris (and Tulips) are my favorite flowers, and I was so happy to see these beauties so unexpectedly :O)
