In the 1930’s the Iris was chosen the state flower of Tennessee by state lawmakers even though the Passion flower had been named state flower 14 years earlier by a state commission. In 1973 the state legislature orchestrated a compromise and named the Iris Tennessee’s state cultivated flower. These beauties are what are growing in my garden.
My neighbor has the most beautiful roses growing in her front yard.
Recently I purchased a light table on Amazon to use for photography. My first project with it was photographing tulips and tulip petals.
