Pictures from LJ of the resplendent irises from her garden in North Carolina.

The shape of an iris has always fascinated me. There is much to be said and learnt about the structure of the flower but that is not for the botanically challenged population of which i am a part of. What i can say is that the structure of the flower ensures that an insect that picks up pollen from it does not brush off the pollen onto the same flower, but carries it to another flower.
