Photo Friday - Flowers in Madrid

Irises in the Real Jardin Botanico in Madrid, Spain

That's right! After a month off, Photo Friday is back! For whatever reason I wasn't feeling overly inspired this week when it came time to choose a picture to share, so I went with a trusty favorite. I'm absolutely crazy about this photo from Madrid. The sharpness of the purple iris gets me every time, and I love the orange and reds hanging out in the background. The Real Jardin Botanico is filled with a million gorgeous flowers, and it also provides a quiet reprieve from the hustle and bustle of Madrid. It only costs 2.50 to get in (unless you're a student, then it's just 1.25), so definitely check it out if you ever find yourself in the city.

  1. One of my favorites!!! I'm beyond in love with that gorgeous iris... I always think of the most exquisite purple and white tutu. The vibrant purple was captured so beautifully and the pops of orange and red add such richness and oomph. (You know I'm in love when I write sentences with a million 'ands'... ridiculous.) I just love this photo like I love chocolate. Excellent capture, Sweets! And I really, really wish I could go there...
