A River of Irises

One advantage to having a wet and cool summer is that the wild irises are thriving. I live across the way from a field or, garden, as it is called in Newfoundland, that is full of wild flowers including the wild iris. There are irises all over the land adjacent to the beach but in this particular garden they grow like a river. Usually by the end of June they have finished flowering but this summer they were late and I can still find a few stragglers.

I was excited to find some yellow irises for the first time too!

Who doesn't love dragonflies and flowers and puppy dog eyes?

I have been enjoying my camera more and more these days. Before I had a digital camera I was often disappointed with my shots, now I can shoot to my hearts content and be playful with it too. And I usually get a few good ones!
Lately I have been playing around with close-ups. I especially like the close-up of Roxy's eye.

I promise not to complain that it has been raining for four days straight!
