Wednesday in Wyoming -- April 13, 2016
Aren't these beautiful? In case you're not familiar with them, they're dwarf iris. They also come in a lighter purple and yellow, but this seems to the predominant color.
Remember how I told you that cottontails preferred white crocuses to the other varieties? When the dwarf irises first opened, the rabbits wouldn't touch them, regardless of the color. (No complaints from me, I assure you.) But during the most recent snowstorm, one bunny would dig through inches and inches of snow to devour purple dwarf iris. I have to admit that it was cute to see the brightly colored blossoms disappear into his mouth. Fortunately, by that time the snow had taken its toll on the flowers, so losing a few to a hungry bunny wasn't a tragedy.
