Irises as Spanish Dancers

My Spanish dancers are blooming. Okay, they’re Irises, but every time I see them I think of the swirling skirts of Spanish dancers.

Even holding still the petals seem full of motion.

I also love the way that the petals sparkle when you get up close to them in the sunlight.

This year’s crop is thick. I’m going to have to transplant some in the fall so that they have space to grow tall and glorious again next year.

All too soon these beautiful blooms will be gone, but for now I can sit close and enjoy the fragrance.

    What interesting colours. Irises, the traditional Indigo and Yellow kind, are one of my favourite flowers – so much so that I had them in my wedding bouquet and my husband and the grooms wore one in a boutonniere. I didn’t even know they came in different “flavours”.
