My next door neighbor made a comment to me last week that I’ve been happily pondering ever since. She said she is always amazed that from early spring to late fall, I have something blooming in my yard. My mother would be proud, since this was a goal she always worked towards and she instilled the same desire in me.
This morning, as the sun was coming up, I took this photo of the irises growing just outside my kitchen door. They started their full bloom only yesterday, and the one at the top left is in the process of unfurling. I love this time of year!
