The Iris of my Eye

In central Pennsylvania, Iris flowers are blooming everywhere and they are catching my eye!
I have always thought that Iris flowers were beautiful, and they have a unique scent that is pleasant, yet not overpowering when brought inside as a cut flower.

One of the great things about this plant is that the blooms come in so many different colors and shapes. It is almost impossible to not find a color or shape that goes with your current garden needs/theme.
These pictures are some of the Iris flowers I have come across this summer so far and just had to photograph.
