Coming Up Irises

Standard

As the weather has warmed up, lanky green leaves started to appear in the iris garden.   Then it was flower stalks, tantalizing with the promise of blooms to come.  The past two weeks it’s been warm enough that the flowers have put forth their glory.  Aren’t they gorgeous?

The irises are courtesy of Grandmeow and my good friend E.  Irises apparently grow like weeds here, requiring very little care.  These blooms aren’t even hooked up to the drip line.  They just get whatever water falls from the sky.  That makes them perfect for me, as I have a black thumb when it comes to growing things.

The single windows in the background are my office.  When it’s a particularly trying day, I look out an am reminded that no matter how difficult work is, there is beauty in the world.
