Today's Flower

Today's Flower is an Iris. These Iris photos were taken at the Pfister Iris Garden. The garden is located on the East Campus of the University of Nebraska. The garden was started as a result of memorial gifts to UNL in the 1980s for the purpose of establishing an iris collection. It now includes more than 150 varieties of award-winning and named iris varieties.

Iris's have always appealed to me because of their shape and because I like the colour purple a lot. Nice Photos.

It is awe inspiring when observing flowers intricacies. This Iris garden must be a wonderful show when they are in flower. Your bird pictures are very remarkable in their natural beauty.
