Some years ago wild irises began to grow in one place of our garden. I've never seen them there neither in an other place before that is why I was surprised when I've found them for the first time. It was about 4-5 years ago. Frome that time the rare plants became numerous, the place where they grow (the only place -I tryed to plant them near the house but they don't like it) seems to be to their liking, and we have an entire glade of wild irises now. Here are the photos I took this week.
Here are 2 photos from March 1 and 7. If you look with attention on the first of them, you can see only some heads of irises. The second photo is about all the flowers open (brown points).
Ladies, I present you finally Wild Iris!
The main view was not so astonishing as I want you think about it. The green flowers on the green grass were almost invisible. I don't know how to explain it to you... I like irises. Those hybrids everybody knows. I would even like to have those incredible varieties you can see in some specialized sites. They are works of art, yes.
These simple green flowers can not attract the eye of passersby. In fact, residents do not know even about the existance of this specie that grows in their fields.
I... I like their simplicity. This particular color of the flower. This work of art of Creator who does not seek "luxury" of the forms and colors...
Excuse me if I could not explain my thoughts...
