Wordless Wednesdays ~ Timeless Blossoms

The most popular flower during the pioneer days of the 1800's. Often found at abandoned homesteads, blooming ever so brightly, long after the humans have left.

Do you know the name of this flower?

Three cheers to these impressive perennials who refuse to listen to such negativity as: "No, you can't."

Oh, these gorgeous irises make me long for the season now passed! So much life and warmth! I do love winter, but there's something so thrilling and envigorating about the blooms of summer!
