From This to This

April 14, 2012

During my lunch break today I took the opportunity to take pictures of Iris’s that were planted in front of our City Hall several years ago. They are also growing near  the bus station. I did not make it home yesterday evening. I have a backup plan now, and that means taking extra clothing with me for unpredictable weather days…and actually getting to stay with my daughter is a bonus because we get a little quality time together. I don’t know what color these are…but they are stunning.

Wow, wow, wow!

As I write I am thinking about all of the very many kinds of flowers there are and all of the color that our eyes get the benefit of looking at.Simply amazing!!! 

I went from this to this…

To this..

And this…

But I also came home to a dinner of stew and cornbread and a hot fire in the fireplace and cats curled up cozy like, they do so very well…

    Those iris are something special! Something I like about snow country. When spring/summer finally comes it is usually spectacular, with all of the flora concentrating on the short growing season.

    Those iris are gorgeous! I’ve never seen them in those beautiful peachy-coral colors before. And how lucky you got to photograph them before they were buried in snow! Your stew and cornbread sound so good that I think I’ll make some for myself.
