Iris Observation

Irises are blooming everywhere right now.  Some people have large clumps of one color in one location.  They are all lovely, but the most beautiful collection I have ever seen, anywhere, had a random mix of colors.  Something about the mix of colors really pops, especially when the sun hits them.

These aren't mine.  We haven't been collecting irises long enough to have this profusion.  I'm not sure I'll ever be able to leave them alone long enough to allow a mass of blooms.  I keep separating them and starting more beds.  Maybe I can let them multiply and fill in spaces soon.
