It's been raining all day here, making today perfect for working on portraits.

I hung out at my dad's for lunch today and his bearded irises are going full steam. They are really rather lovely flowers (with some interesting patterns when viewed up close) and I adore their delicate scent.

A red bearded iris, viewed in closeup. The yellow and orange stripes at the base of the petals are visible, as is the strip of yellow fuzz that runs down the middle of the petal.

This red is so intense and rich. It looks like velvet.

We finally got a little bit of sun yesterday, so I went to the lake. For growth, plants in the crevices of a stone retaining wall:

We'd a rare glimps of sun when I was outside earlier today. I love the way the raindrops glitter in the sun.

I keep forgetting to upload my photos to the computer so these are from Satuday and Sunday. The first two are of newly unfurled leaves...

The petal of a Douglas iris, viewed in closeup. It is purple with a stripy purple and white pattern near the base of the petal.

Technically 'growth' too, I suppose! I really love the detail on iris petals.

I was going to take a picture of the cinderblock pattern but when I got closer I discovered that the moss between the stones where in flower. So I'm killing two birds with one stone with this picture, both patterns and growth :-)

Some of them, anyway. I think there may be a couple more I haven't found and uploaded from the camera...it's been that kind of two weeks.

The first one's a stretch as it was actually taken the day before the aperture started, but it's also my only "growth" photo so far and I'm rather fond of it, so I included it:

Planting season
