One flower that always brings me joy when I see it is the iris. My Grandma Ida loved painting the iris. When I think of her, I always associate the iris with her.
This morning I tried drawing this iris from a photo that I took this past summer. If you are ever in Fort Collins, Colorado State University, has flowers on their campus that are breathtaking. I would recommend adding it to your visit if you ever go there.
This is my first iris of the season, so be on the lookout for more.
What is your favorite flower?
