Blue Flowers - Walking Iris

Walking Iris FlowersLast year Mario gave us a gift of a flowering plant that he adores. He planted it in the ground and checked it often for evidence of flowers to come. It took an entire year and now the flowers are here. The fragrant flowers last only one day and about every other day or so, new flowers appear. This morning I saw the new unopened flowers and hurried to the camera and take pictures.

I was surprised to see the flowers opening right before my eyes. One petal at at time would pop open.

Walking Iris FlowersHow lovely!
