  1. Very pretty….thank you for the suggestion for flax seed oil for my eyes. I also have dry eye along with my other autoimmune issues and it seems that it take a long time for me to clear any kind of infection….Michelle

  2. Beautiful flower and I learned something. However, I’m not sure if this word will stick with me and roll off my tongue during a conversation at the pub 🙂

  3. thanks for the English lesson (I’m German you know):
    “Zygomorphic flower: A flower that can be divided into equal halves along only one line; bilaterally symmetrical…”

  4. I love the iris, they grew wide along the water canals where I used to live. They are so delicate, and their petals just amazing! Great shot! Yx
