So I met these lovely people yesterday. I've driven by their home for years and always admired their rows of daffodils, then irises, then roses. I finally stopped in, introduced myself and asked if they minded if I painted in their garden. They were delightful and said no problem! They told me this particular iris is named "Dark Triumph". I don't usually paint with so much green. It felt weird...lol. Does that sound weird? Usually I paint in a sky or something but today I decided to indicate the flowers/lawn in the background. I ♥ irises. They are my earliest flower memory as a kid. Maybe it's becasue I had a major purple-thing going on ; )

p.s. And speaking of ♥, I just want to send a huge heartfelt thank you to all those who read my blog and follow along. You're really the best!
