I is for Iris............
I didn't expect to find this little beauty while on a hike in the middle of the woods.
I always thought of the Iris as being a cultivated plant that was spread by it's roots.
There was only this one set, with three flowers on it.
It was growing alongside a beautiful spray of ferns, and the purple really stood out against all that green.
I am thinking it must be a wild variety of iris, but I am still not sure how it got to be where it was.
It was the only one around, and I am glad we were there at the right time to catch it in all it's glory!.
