ELECTRIC SHOCK IRIS in our YARD

Through May,  we have had many Irises blooming in our yard.  They are all pretty --but there's something about this one which I love.   Her name is Electric Shock!  Pretty,  don't you think?

Hugs,

I love the variety of colours you now see and the way the petals are slightly frilled at the edges. That's quite a beauty you have in your garden.

She is gorgeous and it must be the name. LOL Of course it is one of my favorite colors. Thanks for giving us a tour of your yard in May on your other blog. You are so popular that I rarely post a comment on your other blog. Peace

Oh, so pretty! When I grew up on our farm we had so many different ones. However, they just don't thrive here in the woods--not enough sunlight, I guess.

So pretty! But should think before touching :)

Oh yes, shockingly beautiful!
I think purple is my favorite color in flowers.
