So do I, Gail! Aren't they just gorgeous. And it's so nice that spring has finally returned after a long winter. I am appreciating every flower even more this year!

Beautiful shots of Irises. The dandelion puff doesn't look like anything I've seen. Perhaps I need to look more closely. I have found the odd seed with its parachute in my garden , however.

Pantherka said...

Ruth Hiebert said...

Eye candy!

DeniseinVA said...

Gorgeous Gail, fantastic macros! I can never get enough of beautiful flowers and you've certainly have them here.

Barb said...

My mother used to call Iris blooms "flags" because in PA when I was a girl they bloomed around Memorial day. You already have so much growth and color - enjoy!

Debbie said...

Bloom-a-licious....gorgeous blooms, luscious colors!

Stephanie said...

Oh my these are lovely to see!

June Caedmon said...

Your "flower-power" was just what I need earlier today, my friend. I wasn't able to comment at the time, but these lovelies were better than my mid-afternoon jolt of java! {and that is saying a lot, lol!} Absolutely stunning, Gail!

Anita Johnson said...

These are stunning...I have tried to get foxglove to grow here...not sure why it doesn't. Love the color and the details...come on spring!

Barbara Shallue said...

I do, too! All I have are the wild things near me, but one day I hope to grow some daffodils and irises again. Beautiful shots!

Melissa said...

Very pretty! Such a beautiful variety of colors. I'm starting to see wild irises around here, but always along busy roadsides where I can't stop to photograph.

Karen said...

Gorgeous blooms!

Spare Parts and Pics said...

Beautiful!!! The iris shots are impressive, but my fav is the dandelion (or whatever it is)!

Hannah said...

Your irises are lovely, I don't have any of that type. I like the unusual red combination of the first photo, your flowers seem to be ahead of mine. Isn't spring wonderful!

Evelyn S. said...

All so very lovely!

Gunilla B├Ąck said...

Gorgeous flowers! It's amazing how many different shapes and colours they come in. I love them all.

BeachGypsy said...

Hi Gail, great close ups there!! Keep 'em coming!

Ida said...

I never grow tired of seeing beautiful flowers like these. So very wonderful.

eileeninmd said...

Me too, Gail! Your flowers are gorgeous. So many pretty blooms and colors.. Lovely photos. Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

Wally Jones said...

Beautiful subjects beautifully photographed.

Bethany Carson said...

Lovely captures here! The flowers are gorgeous and you captured them beautifully!

Helma said...

Jeez ..... what a beautiful photos of these flowers. And indeed it does not matter whether it is farmed or wild, they are all wonderful. I think a whole separate photo 5 flower. What is this beautiful flower ????

Indrani said...

Lovely sharp focus on the flowers. Great shots!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Absolutely stunning flower photography. Iris are special to me -- and they will still be in bloom when we get back to Oregon, so they are one of my old favorites I do still get to see.

Thanks for the spring beauty -- you have a lot more familiar spring flowers up there than we do down south here.

Macro of flowers are always amazing!!! Sad that our normal vision misses so much of the detail of flowers!!
Lovely Gail!!
