Iris versicolor at Concourse Lake, Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, June 3rd, 2017

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017

This is flowering in our back yard, in our urban vacant lot turned native plant garden, and at the native plant park in our neighborhood, as well as in the parking lot of the Please Touch Museum, also in our neighborhood.  Enjoying it while it is here for this fleeting moment. Now thinking about collecting some seeds from our specimens and propagating this wonderful native species of Iris!

The Dogwoods in the park across Parkside Ave are still blooming away, everyday the bracts get a little bit bigger. They were covered with hundreds of pollinating insects.
