Short Iris

These short and short-lived irises are one of the first flowers to bloom in my garden.  A close of of it's tongue is below. It was taken in different light - in a vase in bright light.

That rich purple colour is just amazing
Mary MacADNski: They are a rich, true purple and low, under the other blooms.
Calling. It a short iris sounds like an insult Mary.
Mary MacADNski: Short is not an insult at all, just a measurement. It is only a few inches high.
Things are now starting to move apace with us flowers everywhere, just too much rain which is battering them down and spoiling the display.
Mary MacADNski: My daffodils have peeked through but are hiding from the cold under a blanket of fresh snow.

What an absolute beauty - purple passion!
Mary MacADNski: I love the little things but weeding them is tiresome.

I love the iris family, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I like them but do not appreciate their short lives. There today, gone tomorrow.
I like the brightness in the bottom photo...
Mary MacADNski: It was in very bright sun. They are normally deep purple.

I know little about the iris but I'm beginning t recognise them. This one has a gorgeous colour.
Mary MacADNski: Pure, plain, royal purple with the tinge of blue.

What a lovely deep purple. Irises are a spring favourite, but as you say,they don't last very long.
Mary MacADNski: I love them inside for that one day with other things that bloom at the time.
The top one looks really nice.
Mary MacADNski: They are lovely indoors and out.
They are lovely flowers Mary
Mary MacADNski: Purple as purple can be,.
