The irises are out

It must be spring - the daffodils and the irises are out.  I tried taking some pictures today in case I ever get inspired to design something floral, but only one picture turned out ok.  Even this one doesn't do justice to the colour, the actual flowers were darker.
We have finally had some rain, enough to say that the drought it over - or should we be hedging our bets and saying it is probably over?  Areas of Victoria have been, and still are, and some will be, under flood but the general feeling is of optimism that the drought is over and we could have a good harvest.  It all reminds me of the 'drought and flooding rains' of Dorothea MacKellars' poem, My Country.
