All about Flags.............

In my last blogposts, I took you out in the wilderness with me, 
which included some beaver ponds full of wild flag iris....

We saw so many, that today...
I decided that I had to do an entire blogpost devoted just to them.

I love that they grow in so many unexpected places..
like here...amongst old dead wood:

Or hidden in tall grass:

Or in clumps along pond's full of lily pads edges:

Heads open and turned toward the sun:

Or in groups, like a family on a picnic outing:

Or, two lovers, hiding in an intimate secret spot by themselves:

Or  bravely, vulnerably living on the water's edge:

A full bloom and a promise of a bloom, side by side:

They were everywhere...purple beauties!:

So many....
that I have to do just one more blogpost to share more with you next time!

these wild beauties rival the beauty of the ones in the solarium at Selby Gardens, i much prefer them in the wild. so beautiful right where God chose to plant them.

Loved the captions! I think my favorite is against the dead wood, just because of the contrast--but loved them all! :)
