The butterfly iris bloomed!

The butterfly iris I planted in the front yard had a few blooms when I bought it, but the blossoms only lasted a day. I noticed on Friday that some of the stems had turned white on the tips, but I didn't realize they were buds until Saturday morning.

The blossoms are so delicate.

From a distance, they do look a bit like butterflies.

I wish they lasted a tiny bit longer.

They're all gone today.
