Petal by Petal: German Iris

If there is one flower that has really stolen my heart this spring it would be the German Iris. It has a beauty that is dimensional, colorful and seeing it bloom is like watching something absolutely beautiful unfold in front of your eyes.  This spring flower is in full bloom in the New York area, many brownstones in my  neighborhood have front yards filled with these tall blooming beauties in a variety of purple, blues and pinks.  I picked up this bunch at the Union Square Market over the weekend.  I was intrigued by their vibrant color in addition to their soft powdery aroma that is laced with a bit of pepper. If you are looking for a bloom to incorporate on your coffee table, night stand or table setting definitely consider the German Iris, I can guarantee you will be just as enamored.

  12. These are so pretty. Did you snap them yourself? I love the flowers almost as much as the photographs themselves.
