This post serves a dual purpose for me. First, it hits a weekly photo challenge, and second, it makes me want Spring even more. Fitting, as tomorrow will be the first day of Spring.
I took this photo last May, when our flowers were in full bloom. These irises, which we got from some of our old neighbors, are so dark that they almost appear black. The textures and subtle color changes throughout made it clear to me that a close up was the best for showing all the nuances for these flowers. I love the signs of Spring, and am definitely ready for that to happen this year! Hope you all enjoy!
