Name That Flower



This flower was enjoying the rain. So was I, as a matter of fact. Name the flower if you can ... I can't.

This is gorgeous!

I don't know for sure, but it looks like some kind of Iris. It's beautiful with the raindrops on it.
You did good!!!

Beautiful shot George! It's looks like a canna and a very pretty one at that:) Is the foliage big wide leaves?

It looks like an Iris, common name Flag. Very pretty what ever it is. Are those raindrops on it?

Carletta: Thank you!! The irises have it.

Janice: Thank you! I just did some image searching and the flower looks exactly like the canna lily, but the leaves look like iris!! I think it's a variety of the flag iris.

MB: Raindrops keep falling on my iris!! Thank you!

Beautiful shot, George. It's an iris. I featured irises yesterday on Menton. Take a look.Yellow ones. Yours are stunning and particularly beautiful with the rain on them.
