Iris: its name comes from the Greek word for a rainbow.
The plant has a wide variety of colors.
They have 6 petals; 3 petals stand up, the other 3 petals lay back.
Which group of colors do you like?
A lot of Irises in the botanical garden haven't bloomed, so I didn't get all of the colors yet.
This is the Iris garden, which is just a small area in the botanical garden, but contains many varietals. In the background, you can see someone sitting on a bench, drawing the irises.
There were several people throughout the garden with drawing pads and pastels; it looked like an art class was visiting today.
