Tall & Purple – Grand & Violet

This iris is growing in the little wood at the back of our property. It’s exceptionally tall, no doubt because it needs to compete with all the trees around it. Today is the last of the ice saints and it’s been raining most of the day. Rain is sadly predicted for the next 8 days with an average temperature of 9 to 16 degrees Celsius (48 to 60). Sigh.

Cet iris pousse dans le petit bois au fond de notre terrain. Il est vraiment très grand, sans doute parce qu’il est en compétition avec les arbres autour. Aujourd’hui c’est le dernier saint de glace. Il a plu presque toute la journée. Malheureusement la pluie est prévue pour les prochains huit jours avec une température moyenne de 9 à 16 degrés. Dur, dur.

I don’t think our irises have an odour (that’s my Australian spelling). Did you read my feedback on The Bike Ride? I loved it and am now reading Cleopatra’s Needle. Thank you so much for suggesting it.
