There is something ethereal about an iris bloom... especially the pastel ones.  Delicate petals...  swatches of gossamer fabric dancing and swaying on a soft breeze... tufts of bright orange filaments crowned with golden fairy dust disguised as pollen to attract the bees.  A garden is a magical place.
