This is yet another piece from my plein-aire trip to Iris 4 u in Denver this week. I didn't get the name of this flower, so I created my own; I hope Iris Bob approves. I don't really understand plant genetics. The idea of hybridizing a flower is so interesting. But, how do you create a flower whose standard is shadesof peach, and whose beard is deep purple, lavender and white? My creativeness bends in a different direction.

I don't know how many of you follow r garriott's blogs (4), but you should. Great paintings! Today the urban garden blog featured Iris 4 u!! I couldn't believe it! I guess Coloradoans think iris this month!
