Not a Grass, Not an Iris as Well

Today's Flowers


Flowers

This grass-like, iris looking flower caught my attention while my sister and I were in Baguio last March. We were carrying heavy bags, and we cannot roam around the city because that would break our backs! Well, we decided that we will go to Baguio and spend the whole day there and then travel to La Union (two hours from Baguio) late in the afternoon where we will meet mom and brother. Apart from checking the sights in the city, sister and I would also buy some flowers for daddy - the next day was his first year death anniversary.

Anyway, since we arrived in the city way too early, we decided to kill time in Burnham Park. While sister's sitting, I roam around and take pictures, and that's when I see this plant. It looks so delicate, but I love it because it's purplish. If only I can pull the plant and take it home... =)

Well you could have fooled me! I would have guessed it's an iris for sure. ;-)
