Today's Flowers ~ Oct 11, 2009
( find other flowers around the world ~ here )
This flower is called 'Walking Iris.' I have some growing next to a little water garden in my yard. Although they are not water plants they seem to do well in this shaded spot of my yard near the Water Hyacinth in the pond.
The Water Hyacinth is classified as an 'invasive Aquatic Plant' in Florida waterways. The ones I have are confined to this small pond! I love the blooms and I think the light purple blooms and the yellow 'Walking Iris' flowers look pretty growing next to each other.
