Iris Time

There have been more storms, rain, sunshine and winds today with the afternoon temperature now eighty-four degrees. Many chores are on hold waiting for the weather to calm.

Today the garden is full of exuberant blossoms mostly erupting from large drifts of various kinds of iris. In-between early morning rain showers I explored the garden, enjoying and appreciating these wonderful plants that year after year possess the ability to fill me with anticipation during the early weeks of Spring. When a few flowers open I am thrilled and charmed, and then there comes a day when I notice the irises are not just in the garden, they are the garden. They completely define my garden for a brief, wonderful slice of time.

It is iris time.
