Rainy Day Iris

My contribution to Michelle's Nature Notes (#364).
In real life, I remember this rainy day Iris being shockingly purple. The picture looks more bluish purple.

Here's what's been going on in the backyard:

The iris is beautiful. And the cardinal and sparrow eating on the ground are great. Our daughter scatters seed on the ground for her birds as she doesn't have time to keep feeders clean. They love it.

Looks like the Kitty is giving a fair warning to Theda :)
Lovely to see some good scenes from the animal kingdom and the fence.
Have a Happy Day!!
