Leaf structure is about 12 inches tall, the bloom itself is about 3 inches across. Look, close, I caught a bug in there dining. See:
This yellow/white iris is about twice the size, leaf and flower. This beauty is so heavy when they are in full bloom, they have a very hard time staying upright. I have tried to tie them up, with little success, best solution, cut a HUGE bouquet and bring them in and ENJOY!
This sunshine hurt your eyes yellow iris is a new purchase/addition
to my flower beds. Photo does not do justice.
*Photos taken with the new Sony, on macro setting. I have been a tad unhappy with capturing flowers when trying to stand closer than 5 foot. Not sharp enough for me, and quite hard to get in focus. So, the other evening I tried something new, use Macro setting, for 1 to 5 foot distances. Seems to be the answer for me, that said, I am still experimenting. Practice, practice, practice. Tough assignment, but someone has to do it! LOL
