Blood Iris (Iris Sanguinea) in Salt Lake City

Some of the hidden beauty of the natural world.
Wonderblue, a French hybrid cultivar, is also known as Little Boy Blue Lilac. Its scent was non-existent Saturday when I shot this, probably due to the fluctuating weather here in Salt Lake.

It’s that time of year in Salt Lake, and I love tulips at this stage.

A section of Manhattan’s High Line at 10th Avenue and 16th Street. Between 1934 and 1980 an elevated portion of the New York Central Railroad brought freight trains directly into the Merchants Refrigerating Company Warehouse in Chelsea. The building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

This morning we had a visit from this red-tailed hawk, who has been hanging around Rittenhouse Square. He (I think it’s a young male) may be related to the pair who nested for several years at Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute:
