Wow, Marilyn, that iris must be amazing. The slice itself makes for a very fine banner. It looks to me to be a wonderfully exotic bird flying away. (Do you see it?) Smiling

Great banner Marilyn!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I agree; it's a beautiful phenomenon depicting a graceful bird in flight. In my eye the left and right falls are the wings; and the bottom fall illustrates the tail feathers.

Thank you @Whitebeard, @Frenchy21, @crawgarden, @iciris, @GaNinFl, @TBGDN and @greenappleagnes for your nice comments.

Thank you @TBGDN, @tveguy3 and @tx_flower_child for the generous acorns.

Thank you @bootandall, @Frenchy21, @GaNinFl, @greenappleagnes, @greene, @iciris, @jmorth, @krobra, @lovemyhouse, @TBGDN, @TexasPlumeria87, @tveguy3, @tx_flower_child, @vic, @Whitebeard, @wildflowers and @zuzu for the thumbsup.

Sean, I didn't even notice until you pointed it out. Great observation! It does look like a bird.

This is the full size pic of the banner.



Here's more pics I took of it.







I only grew it in 2010 and after the end of the season, dug up all my bearded irises and decided to plant other types of plants.

Sorry I'm so late responding. I'm happy you loved my banner, as much as, I did.
