Splendid composition in the bright light to capture this gorgeous and eye-catching flower!! Is this an iris variety? The frilly edges are unique.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Steven, this is an iris, probably my favorite of all flowers. Thank you.

It is a stunner, Ginnie...should be popular with fun-loving bees.

THIS is such a delicate flower, Ginnie and one of a kind I never saw before. What a decorative flower this is. A likey to me.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. I have a special place in my heart for irises, as you know, because of Mom having Alzheimer's...like Iris Murdoch, the British novelist and philosopher.
Just superb Ginnie. Great capture
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Marie.

A beautiful flower pic Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
what a pretty flower!!! the markings!! is it an Iris? lovely picture of it!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Elaine. It's an iris...my favorite flower! Thank you.
Firstly what a beautiful flower, quite unusual. Secondly it is a very attractive picture of it, this is the sort of picture Maureen and I try to come up with for when she is making gift cards, a hobby of hers.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. I was thinking, too, that it might make a good greeting card.

great capture of this beautiful Iris..Ginnie

well done !

have a nice day
Truly exotic flower!
You know we can grow walking irises in tropical Malaysia too.

But I have only seen the yellow variety so far. Nothing fanciful like your photo today.
