Photo Essay: Rainbows and Rainy Days

It was a long, cold, wet spring in the Pacific Northwest. Thankfully, I love photographing irises when they are sparkling in the wet. 

Here are some of my favorite photos taken this year of the historic irises in my collection.

'Airy Grace'

'Aztec Copper'

'French Maid'

'Hermit Thrush'



'Mountain Sunset'
