Butterfly Iris

Butterfly Irises also known as Wild or Fairy Irises (Dietes grandiflora) are blooming nicely in our area now. Their petals appear to float delicately on the breeze so I can see why they have the name. Was fascinated by the bloom with the folded petals – looked like it was grumpy to me so I called it the Irate Iris.
