Gorgeous! Iris is growing in the wild also in Norway. For some reason they are always the same colour: the same as you have hear! Well, I haven't seen any other color...

Beautiful shot!
Wish you a great week!

I have an ever-growing clump of these in one of my yards. They're long gone but were most lovely when they were all in bloom.

Iris are among my favorite flowers.
