IRIS SNAIL – May 6-2015

I left the house early so I might catch some warm morning light but the clouds rolled in and it was not to be. In fact, just after I got home it started to sprinkle.

I did manage to capture a couple of things I hope you like.

First up this beautiful Douglas Iris (Iris douglasiana) growing in an English garden along 9th Street.


Then I spotted this snail that was enjoying the flowers as much as I was. I think it’s the rare “Iris Snail”.


Walking toward the Coupeville Wharf I spotted the Schooner Suva tied to the dock. She sure does look at home docked at the old 1905 warehouse, passenger waiting room and fuel dock.


Here’s a closer look at the Suva. She sure is a beautiful ship! Not a bad sunrise surprise either.


There, that should get you over the hump. Thanks for walking with me, now enjoy your day, it’s all downhill for here.
