Not True Blue

Last week I helped a friend with a computer problem, and to thank me she presented me with a bunch of Dutch irises. At that stage none of the flowers were open; only a hint of their purple colour was visible. But now they are bursting open and looking fantastic:
Of course the camera doesn't like their colour, washing them out a bit and turning them blue instead of their true deep purple.  Imagine them more like this:                                         


  1. Blue or purple they are beautiful

  2. i agree with Kate, they do look beautiful. They were a lovely thankyou gift.

  3. I love Dutch Iris, especially the yellow ones. I have a pot of them and knowing my luck they will flower when I am away. They are in bud at the moment.
