This week I parked in a shopping center lot. The architecture was drab and the sun, bright and very hot. By my car window was what look like a butterfly iris trying to be proud, not that flowers have emotions. I sat behind the wheel and took this shot with the window rolled down–seemed right to not make much effort. I mean, how many people actually pay attention to this flower and, certainly, who would write about it? Well, what the world needs is more exceptions to the expected and this post is one.
