Here's a little game to get us through the Winter blues.

Can you identify the irises that were planted in this bed?
Thumb of 2017-01-21/UndertheSun/63e8b6

I'll cross out the irises that were correctly guessed and post the answer key at the end of the guessing on this bed. I'll also add the persons name to the correctly guessed iris(es). The person that gets the most correct, gets to post the next "guess what this is".

edit: Fixed the image so the copyright text was moved down a little.

Please do not edit your posts and add, or change your guesses. Those changes will most likely be missed and it's easier to keep up with the guesses.

Here's the updated photo with the correctly guessed irises marked off.

It's easier to keep up if it's in a new post.

Leslie is kicking butt so far. Thumbs up I need to make the pictures smaller next time. Hilarious!
