Dating a Royal

Watercolor, pen and ink and colored pencil (predominant media) on Arches hot press cotton paper. — at Schreiner's Iris Gardens
I spent the day wandering around the flowers at Schreiner's Iris Gardens and I kept coming back to this Iris.  It is quite frankly breathtaking.  When I bought a bouquet to bring home at the end of the day, I was lucky enough to have one Dating a Royal included in the bunch and I enjoyed it for at least a week.  I don't consider myself a collector but I think I'm going to have to add this Iris to my garden.
