Iris Blooms

Last week, I visited the most beautiful Iris Gardens
 in the grounds of a castle not too far from where I live. 
Jardins des Iris

These white and purple stripey blooms were so stunning
and I had to include all of them !

The sun played hide and seek with the clouds throughout the whole of my visit and there was a mean wind blowing and making all the plants tremble and sway enormously!
I did manage to get some shots that weren't blurred though!
I think that I will add them bit by bit over a few days!


  1. Beautiful pictures, I love iris's - we have some out in the garden at the moment - a glorious promise of summer!

  2. These look like beautiful paintings Sandra.
    Ours are blooming now too.
    It just needs to stop raining so I can get out there with my camera! :-(
    You have a wonderful day!

  3. Oh Sandra these are gorgeous pictures. The iris is such a pretty flower. I hope your weather starts to pick up soon. We are having lovely weather at the moment, sunny and warm. I was beginning to think we were never going to get warm weather again.

  4. oh wow
    your photos are simply wonderful
    wish I could capture images like that
    they are amazing.

    Love the colours and the pure beauty.


    ps following you now!

  5. Super shots of these gorgeous flowers, Sandra! The purple and white stripes are so vivid -- wouldn't it be fun to have dress like this? I love the frilly shapes of the blossoms. So glad you were able to overcome the obstacles and get such lovely images!

  6. Wow Sandra, these are spectacular! I so love this combination with the tiny purple striped that looks like someone patiently used a fine-tip fountain pen and drew down each petal. Stunning!
