Hello Summer

Summer is finally officially here.  My husband says he wants a “do over” for June because the days are going so fast.

Blue Flag Iris June 20 2017

On one of our evening drives we found a wonderful patch of Blug Flag Iris blooming.

near the stream

Iris versicolor a Native to Minnesota plant.  I took this one near another patch on the banks of the Shell River, the water makes a beautiful backdrop.

Such a pretty flower!

I think I would like a do over too, there are way too many Wild Flowers to photograph in June!

  1. That second photo of the irises with the water behind is pretty enough to be a painting.

  3. Just beautiful, as you said. Since it's native to Minnesota, I need you to share it with me in pictures! Lovely flower. :-)

  7. That shade of blue in the Iris is beautiful and especially against the water. I am all for a do-over too. and where did May go! Once July 4th is past I start looking forward to fall. The hot humid weather here is July and August is awful.

  8. June this year in Michigan has changed itself so many times that it's difficult to know what month it really is. Flowers are blooming though and sometimes it's not too wet or too cold or too hot and we can actually enjoy them

  9. I do love blue flag but doubt we have one in Fillmore County as there are NO lakes here and sloughs and marshes are gone due to everything being tiled...:(

  10. Your iris shots are fantastic. I remember having an iris that I cultivated from a swamp grow next to the cabin I lived in.

  13. Your husband would probably like the back up pill that would make him 21 again.
