Iris ensata 'Dace'

22nd June 2008

A delightful pale pink form which has flowered for the first time here this year. I assume that the name is Japanese and does not relate to the delightful silvery fresh water fish that shimmered elusively though my adolescence. I went fishing - well, dangling , for nothing was ever caught and the sleek Dace was one of the many uncaught occupants of my local rivers.
Something swift and elusive about this one as well.
