A Few from Mom's Gardens

Last weekend, we spent the day at my parents house, my sister has moved back into the state, so when I wasn't playing with her dogs, I was walking through mom's gardens.

She has lily of the valley, I don't. I may have to find room for some in a shady corner somewhere.

These are very dark purple irises. I don't have the color quite right, yet. I like the image, but it isn't true to nature. I'll need to try a few more camera tweaks, next time.
