We Adore Iris
(a photo tribute to our beloved pet Hyacinth Macaw)

  sales info

Our pet female Hyacinth Macaw, Iris, was hatched here in 8/02. She is well loved
by all of us here. She gets lots of attention and is spoiled rotten, of course!
Her name came from my dear late mother, who always called this species "Iris Macaws".
Iris LOVES water, so she is the Water Iris.

I hope you enjoy these selected images of our beautiful sweetheart! New images
will be added from time to time (I can't resist taking her photo!).

Iris in the greenhouse with one of the largest of flowers, Aristolochia gigantea, the Giant Pelican Flower.
The flower lasts but one or two days and the golden orange center smells like Lemon Pledge!
I have taught Iris to smell flowers; she will lean into a flower, smell it, and say "Ummmmmmmmmm!".
