...but we have iris for days! Rounding the corner at Simone and Auguste's on the way to the apero at the Salle de Fete, there they were! These gorgeous very deep purple iris in full bloom. I couldn't resist!
The depth of the color and the fullness of the blooms took my breath away. I also remembered that there is actually a variety of iris named "Bourgeois" that are this color.
The Bourgeois variety is not as fully petaled and has more gold in the center, but it is just as beautiful in its simplicity!
I know the iris won't be long for this season either. I plan to get out and enjoy them while I can. Hmmm, maybe it's time to plant a few of my own.
