Lemon Glow

We were at a garden party yesterday.  Our friends have one nearly every summer and it is a colourful affair located in their huge pie shaped backyard, complete with endless gardens full of gorgeous flowers... I always take my camera.  This year the party was a bit earlier in the season, which meant that their iris were still in bloom.  The evening sunlight (sounds funny, I know, but up north here in Edmonton it stays light until almost 11 p.m.) was creating quite the glow on this magnificent lemon yellow Iris.  She was a real show stopper.   I spent some time photographing her beauty so that I could attempt to portray my version of this spectacular bloom for my Monday post.
