The Pacific coast iris hybrids are blooming in the yard

Some of my favorite flowers are blooming here now.

The little wild white irises and yellow Calochortus down the hill along the trail, apple trees in the orchard, dogwoods all around town, and here in the yard, many colors of hybrids of the Pacific coast irises, along with hardy Geraniums and Veronica Waterperry.

The English bluebells (Scilla) are just finishing, the last of the flowering lawn bulbs, and the rest of the spring garden bulbs are done here.

This textured picture of an iris should make fun fabric, especially in a mirrored layout, where, when the grasses meet at the edges of the image they make interesting bug-like designs.
