Bearded Iris

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
