Whipped Cream

More of the beautiful champagne iris...

Back to the same garden where I took the first photos of these luscious specimens, this time more of them had opened and many had matured which seemed to increase the subtle shades of the blossoms. Delicate creamy petals with hints of peach, whipped into soft peaks, decorated with orange pollen perched on anthers like bits of candied orange peel... ready to slide off into the rich chocolate soil.
Dessert anyone?
