The question is not what you look at, but what you see.

Lovely Haiku that compliments your gorgeous Wild Iris flowers~
They are really nice this year. It must be all the rain we have had. The pond is still high.
New blooms and new fuzzy ducklings, too! I think it must be spring in Maine! The Iris are beautiful. Ours in the mts should soon be in bloom.
Haha, Barb! We are having spring every other day. This is the first time I have seen ducklings, but we have had a pair on the pond every year since we moved here. Can you believe we are starting our 5th year in this house?
Oh my; nine! I love this. The fresh of green and the heavenly blue-purple Iris. Perfect.
Christine, I just saw pale blue wild iris on a post from Wyoming. Do you have them?
Beautiful flowers and lovely words.All the best Jan
Thanks so much! I enjoy the wildflowers even more than the ones I plant.
Ahhhh....and one of my fav flowers too! Lovely Sandy.
Mine, too! I just wished they stayed around longer. I will be by to see you in a bit. These past few weeks have been mostly spent outdoors.
Lovely photos and haiku.I planted blue/purple irises a few years ago. This year they have really increased. Coincidently, I have an iris post just up today. My big iris are no longer blooming like that; just one or two flowers come up. I suppose I should separate the clump, but I'm not doing much gardening any more. Time and age, the usual complaint.Adelaide
That is exactly why I love the wild ones so much! Mother Nature puts on one beautiful display after the other. I don't garden as much as I did when I lived in the country, but when I did, a lot of planting was putting wildflowers in the field or at the edge of the woods.
Beautiful floral photos ~ I too love the wild flowers the most! Happy Times to you,A ShutterBug Explores,aka (A Creative Harbor)
Hi Carol, Thanks so much for stopping by. I have been busy, but hope to get back in my normal routine in a few day. I will be by!
beautiful irises and I love the juxtaposition with the ducklings
Thank you!The flags lasted a long time this year. They also moved across the pond to a place I can more easily photograph them.
Hi Sandy,What photo edit app do you use? I have to change since Picasa is no longer going to be supported.Adelaide
I use Aperture mostly, but I think that is going away soon. I have Photo Shop Elements, so will probably do more with them.My blog vacation is over. The yard is in order, and the projects I wanted to get done are!
This is beautiful. I love the photos and your haiku. We have wild iris in the mountains and I was having fun finding them and photographing when I did. Been too long since I was here.
