The town of Dresden, in Northwest Tennessee, has an Iris Festival on the first weekend in May. Part of the festival includes a flower show. Below are some photos from this year’s flower show as well as some of my favorite iris from around the area.
“A flower’s appeal is in its contradictions — so delicate in form yet strong in fragrance, so small in size yet big in beauty, so short in life yet long on effect.” ~Terri Guillemets

It must be lovely to have the flowers advanced in their growing. I have three irises in my garden, roots my Dad bought for his garden. Nice photos! Jane
I do enjoy the iris. Wish they stuck around a little longer than they do.
Great pictures from the fowers !!!!!
Thanks! There are so many beautiful colors.
They are so colorful!
They do add quite a splash of color in the spring. It’s hard to choose a favorite.
I agree with you it’s very hard to choose a favorite one!
