I am not a huge fan of taking pictures of flowers, but sometimes they are so remarkable that you must take note. This bearded iris in our back yard is one of a dozen that are blooming as I write, but they are so fragile that the rain coming tomorrow may destroy them before they have had a chance to entice whatever creature it is designed to attract. The Peonies across the garden that was beat to a pulp by yesterdays thunderstorm, we can only hope that the rains coming will be gentle.
