Backlit

While walking around through the garden this evening, with my camera in one hand and a glass of wine in the other, I was stopped in my tracks by this brilliant iris that had just opened up for the first time. I was able to get this photo of the setting sun shining through the petals, without spilling a drop of wine!

Zoe,

I am traveling right now, but when I get home I will try to find the name of this iris. I used to label them all whenever I planted one, but these days I am lucky just to get them in the ground!
