Is this not the most beautiful iris you have ever seen? A fellow at work brought me this Thursday and it was just an unopened bud. I brought it home and placed it in a glass of water and while I was blogging last night on here, had the pleasure of watching the first petal fall open. And this is what it looked like when I got up this morning.. I just had to share. It has nothing to do with books, but I couldn't resist.
