Flower for the Day Bearded Iris 5-12-16

This iris has been blooming for over a month. It is very hardy having withstood multiple thunderstorms and several hail storms.

A burst of Iris so that come down for breakfast
we searched through the rooms for that
sweetest odor and at first could not find its
source then a blue as of the sea struck
startling us from among those trumpeting petals
William Carlos Williams
