Flowers Series: Tulips & Irises

The tulip, or lale (from Persian لاله, lâleh) as it is also called in Turkey, is a flower indigenous to Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan and other parts of Central Asia.

Iris is a genus of between 200-300 species of flowering plants with showy flowers. It takes its name from the Greek word for a rainbow, referring to the wide variety of flower colors found among the many species.

All of the beautiful flowers I have photographed are from Sturgeon Bay Florist. They always have a wonderful selection of fresh flowers as you can see from my pictures.
