My iris finally bloomed!

In fall of 2009 I picked up some iris bulbs from Boggy Creek Farms along with my vegetables. I wasn't sure where to put them in the landscape, so I just threw them in the backyard 'test garden' bed. This morning, for the very first time, one of them bloomed. I knew it was going to be apricot in color, but it's so much more beautiful and exotic than I expected. What a nice surprise.

And here's the iris abstracted:
