Yellow Beard

Iris by you.

I’ve discovered an appreciation for Irises this year. My favorite are the purple — but these whites are lovely too. I Googled the “parts” of the flower, because I was curious about that prickly part that is light yellow and then almost an orange toward the center of the flower. Laurie Frazer is kind enough to label the parts for us on her Iris web site here. That prickly part? It’s the “beard.” 🙂
