Irises at Reynolda

This time of year I find myself hungry not just for colors, but for flowers, and the sights and sounds of spring and summer. I can almost hear the water trickling into this long pool from the lion head, just out of sight on the right, and I can imagine myself walking through that open door into the greenhouse at Reynolda Gardnes in Winston-Salem, NC. These irises have my favorite iris shape and to me no color shows off shape better than white.

I have been wanting to post this photo since last summer. I had to rotate it a few degrees, and I only got a tool for that in the last few weeks.
