Their names are *Beautiful*, Shannon. And all that matters is that you love 'em! Lovey dubby

Iris #3 *could be* -- Jesse's Song. Photo of mine below:




The purple on mine is actually much darker -- very much like yours. This photo was taken in bright, direct sunlight.

They were all named at one time. Then someone with a leaf blower scatered the tags Rolling on the floor laughing

I do have a couple that I rescued from the house next to me when it was empty. The lady
that lived there before had a bunch of iris that she bred and a bunch of historics. I just could
not leave them there to be abandoned and not cared for . So now they have a home again
where they are loved Lovey dubby I Love them all.. Thumbs up

While waiting for Dee to answer that question, I decided to take a few photos of Jesse's Song to help Shannon see whether her Iris is like mine or not.

Here's a better picture of the color of mine. The focus isn't good on this............. Sad

Then I tried to take a couple pictures of the beard on mine. I left the camera on auto-focus (and should change the setting if I knew how), so the photos are a little fuzzy, but the color shows pretty well.

Thought this photo of two buds -- one unfurling -- was kinda neat.


Wonder if the database wants pictures of buds -- think I'll check and see! Anyway -- Shannon hope this gives you some detail to check against yours! Smiling
