While out for a walk yesterday morning (I always carry my camera on my morning walks) I came upon an Iris... this Iris. Yes, I realize that the colours look a bit out of the ordinary, but the live Iris really did contain all these colours and tones. Snuggled up against the front steps of the house where it was growing, this fanciful Iris was probably just waking up after a night filled with dancing and laughter. The dusty jewel tones of her pleated skirt, hot orange yellow fringes at the waist, along with the billowy pinky purple petals that made up her blouse gave away her alter ego... a Gypsy.
A camera, a flower, plus morning sunshine, added to a colourful imagination equal part reality and part whimsy...

Shall we dance?
