Lovely irises!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Cycling for 3 hours! You're my hero! You've inspired me. I'm off to the beach with my camera for a walk and to see what I can see.

Have a great Sunday, Wil.

Lovely! You can tell winter is definitely behind.

Patty said...

Did your legs feel sore when you got up this morning, after cycling for three hours?

Beautiful purple flowers.

Dina said...

You must be getting on and off the bike many times with all the fine nature to photograph. :)

VALKYRIEN said...

Nydelige Iris! De er så vakre de som er blå, synes jeg!
Du må trene på norsken vet du! :)

RuneE said...

I'm glad you stopped and shared - they would look lovely anywhere.

Take care!

Those Iris' are beautiful.

Dirk said...

Inderdaad leuk om door de polders te fietsen (of te wandelen zoals wij vandaag deden), en natuurlijk ook altijd het fototoestel bij ons. Leuke irissen (en de schaapjes ook)

RuneE said...

Tusen takk for kommentarene - du gjør det mye bedre enn jeg ville gjort det på nederlandsk...

Indrani said...

These are fantastic, I love the angle of shot!

The Weaver of Grass said...

They epitomise Dutch flowers for me, reader wil - our friends from Hillegom sent us some two years ago along with a lot of other bulbs - they give us such pleasure every year.

Dianne said...

their color is stunning!

Denise said...

You captured some great shots on your bicycle tour. Thank you very much for sharing with Today's Flowers.

Pacey said...

And it's really a beauty esp. those yellows on the center,looks like tongues. Groetjes!

Kathy said...

Oh I would have stopped and taken pictures also. Those are so pretty!

2sweetnsaxy said...

I'm glad you stopped to take those shots. They're great! :-) I've always loved the color of blue irises (or are they purple).

Renie Burghardt said...

Those irises are gorgeous, Wil. And that three hour cycling trip must have been so much fun, through the beautiful countryside. You must be very fit to be able to ride a bike for 3 hours.

Happy Monday!

Renie

Bonnie Bonsai said...

They look like Iris by the shape of the flowers only the leaves are broader. Beautiful cycling after effect. :)

Etje said...

De fietstocht heeft in elk geval prachtige foto's opgeleverd.

Groetjes

Day4plus said...

Beautiful flowers. I like the smaller Iris.
Whew! Three hours---good for you. MB

Ebie said...

What a stamina, cycling for three hours! I would not pass not taking those beautiful purples. Thanks for your kind comments on my crochet. Maybe I can refresh your skill and you can make some few stitches.

Arija said...

Beautiful Irises, Holland must be awash with flowers. Have a wonderful tour and snap happy.

Lanny said...

These little iris are so pleasant. They are just a perfect color combination.

The sight of beautiful flowers never fails to brighten my day. Thank you, Wil.

Regina said...

Beautiful flower as always!

Abe Lincoln said...

Your flower photos are wonderful to see. I have some like these in the same color but do not know their name.

I left a comment for you under the comment you left on Abraham Lincoln's Blog.

Pam said...

I love Iris. Your photos are so delightful and you must be tired after a three hour bike! You amaze me :D

anthonynorth said...
