More irises

fields of iris
campi di giaggioli

A friend has sent these glorious shots from nearby Lamole where the iris industry used to thrive. See the post Beauty and the Beast for background on the Tuscan iris, now flowering in Chianti. 

(All the Gs in giaggioli are soft as iris petals).

Lamole boasts wonderful drystone walls, ancient farmhouses and a good restaurant into the bargain.

Thank-you, Explicit.
ps: the colours are utterly true
