This is my post for the Our World meme.  This meme is a second generation of My World Tuesday created by Klaus Peter and is hosted by three wonderful ladies.  To learn more about our world or to join and share your part of the world, click HERE.

We’ve been fortunate to have some beautiful iris blooming in our yard this Spring.  Iris are quite easy to care for, and when they have marvelous blossoms they are doubly delightful.  The iris above is Orange Harvest.  It’s easy to see how this iris got its name.

Sometimes the blossom is much prettier than the name.  Hell’s Fire is not exactly a name I would pick, but I do like the color.
