The Hawksbill Cabin Iris Patch

The irises have all come and gone at home in Alexandria, so we were happy to see that we'd have another weekend to enjoy them when we arrived at Hawksbill Cabin last Saturday.

While we have a few colors of them back in Alexandria, at HC they are all a single color, light violet, like the lilacs that I photographed earlier in the spring.

That thoughtful past owner planted a drift of them by the driveway at the front of the house with some peonies, which we should be able to enjoy next weekend.  There is also a larger patch of them in the backyard, up the hill.   That's a view I don't photograph often, so you get a look at the back of the house as a bonus.
