Blue Flag Iris

Man does not live by odonate alone. There, I said it. You may be thinking, “Oh no he didn’t. Blasphemer! Heretic!” I guess sometimes I need to channel my inner Cindy Dyer.

Blue Flag Iris (Iris virginica) is a perennial wildflower that can be found near the end of the boardwalk at Huntley Meadows Park, among many places at the park.

Iris was one of my mother’s favorite flowers, occupying a large part of her garden at the home where I grew up in Alexandria, Virginia. A belated but no less sincere “Happy Mother’s Day!” to you, Mom! Always thinking of you. Rest in peace.
