Pale Lavender Iris
Last year a women from the southwest came into the gallery and after talking for a bit, she mentioned that she raised Irises. I mentioned my proclivity for the flower and a month later a box full of Iris bulbs came to my door! They were planted with love last year and the first has bloomed. I must say that this bloom is one of the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. It is a very pale lavender/blue almost white, and the petals are thin and translucent (almost like porcelain.) I love this blossom so much it has inspired a new line of porcelain bowls that will be coming out of the kiln the end of June.
