There is a chill in the air and that means more time on the computer for me. I love to look at everyone's pretty pics on here so please feel free to post your favorites!

My favourite iris photo is Chickasaw Sue. My mobile phone camera tends to add a touch of pink to my photos which in this case made Chickasaw Sue prettier than it is in person. I didn't add it to the database because the colour isn't right.

Beautiful pictures Robin and Brad!

That shot of 'Chocolatier' is what secured it a spot on my top 3 of 'must have' irises for 2017 and it has already been ordered! Big Grin

My favorite image? Hmmm... will have to think about that. Does it have to be my own or can I pick from the database too?

Sergy and Gentle Soul. Brad - fantastic pictures.

In about a week I will finally be done with garden things (I hope). Then I may have time for pictures. Do you want favorites of this year?
