I love flowers. Especially wildflowers. Hiking is an endeavor with its own rewards–namely, having the chance to commune with nature–but it’s always more special when there are wildflowers along to add more color to your trek.
I’m especially fond of purple flowers, and irises are a perennial favorite. (No pun intended!) So I thought I’d start out with an image of a purple wild iris–a great symbol of all that I love about nature!
