Ignored Beauty

This year's Leap into Spring Photo challenge has been so fun. Thank you to Project Alicia, Live and Love Out Loud, and Bumbles and Light for hosting.  

I was tempted to highlight some of my favorite pictures from over the past two months, but sometimes you come across a new photo that is just begging to be shared. 

Over the course of a week my backyard irises came up- a little earlier than usual. I must say, I'm in love and thought these photos would be a beautiful finale to this year's spring photo challenge.

  5. Spring season photography is one of the most preferred and popular theme during these great weather moments. I love how you made the photos look rich in color.
