Sunday Photo - Iris

I can't believe the irises are getting ready to bloom! I took this picture earlier in the week after watering, I like the sun and shadow and water droplets. By next Sunday, I should have blooms to share! :)

Linking up with Jan at Murrieta 365 for Straight Out Of the Camera Sunday, Nancy at A Rural Journal for Your Sunday Best and Madge at The View From Right Here for Weekly Top Shot.

Carole M,
I'm hoping for later this week!

I have two types and the other ones don't have any flower stalks starting yet!

Candy C. said...

Well, it is supposed to be rain water Sunday and Monday! YAY!!

I was surprised they were so early!

Thank you!

I have 2 iris that have buds on them, need to look around at the rest of them closer to see if there are more.

Patricia @ 9th and Denver said...

Our Iris' have almost all bloomed! They'll be fading away soon if these temps keep up like they are.
High was 82° today.

my purple ones didn't bloom this year. Maybe they'll come on anyway...

This picture is so pretty- I like how you captured the droplets of water. The purple draws you in-
thanks for sharing!

Lighthousegal said...

Awesome photo! The budding flower along with the water droplets are totally amazing!

VaishVijay said...

Water droplets and that violetish tinge are awesome! Looking fw to see them in bloom:)

Nancy C said...

My irises are beginning to get their leaf growth in gear -- I can't wait!

Thanks for sharing at YSB this week, Candy. :)

Cheryl said...

I love irises at this stage. Really pretty shot.

Candy C. said...

Tombstone Livestock,
Since I don't have daffodils (yet!), the irises are always my first bloomers!

Hopefully, your purple ones are just late bloomers! :)

Thank you!!

Candy C. said...

Thanks! :)

Irises are one of my favorite spring flowers!

Thank you!!

Kristina said...

Wow! We are just now seeing our daffodils bloom here.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

Mine are starting to come up too! I have two colors of purple, dark and very light. How pretty yours it with the purple-green tints.

I can’t believe it either....dafs, yes, but iris...I am amazed. This has been a once in a lifetime winter and easy onset of spring. Beautiful capture. Mr. Linky says my post is listed on the site, but it does not appear. Here is the link should you want to see the mountains of VA where we live. genie

Candy C. said...

We are a little early here this year!

Don't you just love when all the bulbs start coming up?!?

Thanks! :)

I enjoyed visiting you!!

Amy Dingmann said...

Now that, my dear, is one fine photograph! Your work is amazing! :)

Michaele said...

Just one word - refreshing!

Candy C. said...

Aw, shucks! :)

It is, isn't it?!?

gtyyup said...

Really nice shot with the water droplets! My irises are just popping out of the ground about an inch...eventually!

Actually I'm back for the Soda Bread recipe...we're doing our St. Patrick's Day meal a day late ;~) I'm not going to use the breadmaker...didn't make sense with that method. Lookin' forward to a great meal. Thanks!!

Unknown said...

great shot, and I LOVE irises!

Candy C. said...

Thanks for the nice comments!
I made the Irish Soda Bread again today myself...we had our St. Patrick's day corned beef and cabbage today with Jerry's mom! :)

Thank you!

EMily said...

What a pretty flower!!

Brittany said...

Looks like you have the purple, just like I do. Enjoy!!! Mine bloomed a few weeks ago.

A Colorful World said...

This is a gorgeous photo! I can't wait to see the iris!

Candy C. said...

Em S,
Thank you!

Yep, mine are purple too, I love them!

I was really happy with how it turned out, thanks! :)

So gorgeous! The color and crisp focus as outstanding! Please forgive me my tardiness in visiting your entry in ‘Weekly Top Shot,’ I have been rather under the weather the past few days, although still working. I'm so glad you decided to join us and share at 'Weekly Top Shot.' :-) I hope you'll come share again next week...
