Weatherbeaten beauties in our world

If I were a farmer, I'd be delighted with the rain in southeastern Alberta recently. As co-owner (along with husband and dog) of a large lawn and many trees, I'm fairly pleased with the rain.
However, it has been wreaking havoc on my beautiful burgundy-purple irises, battering them badly. So sad to see.

I'll bet your iris will look even better after the rain has been gone for a while. They look gorgeous here.

Smashed by the rain ! I know that ! My poor flowers don't grow in this cold and rainy weather.
BTW During my UK tour there were a couple of Canadians I told them I know Canadians from Alberta, (I thought it was a town) and had to learn that it is a province in Canada ! Lol !

Oh I saw your title and thought you were writing about us again. Cackle.......Irises are my fave flower - since they arent human, they will recover and be as beautiful as ever, hee hee. (I think we're doing pretty well though, kiddo, and dont tell me if I am deluded!)

That is sad to see. Their colour looked really interesting, even if they were on the ground.

We've had two days of rain. I'm happy with it, even if it is cold!
