Sweet Irises

Mike surprised me with these sweet irises last week, and they’re still blooming! I think they are miracle flowers—just when the blooms were starting to die, a second set of buds peaked their heads out of each stalk! I found this to be an absolute fantastic display! Is this a common trait of some irises? I have a potted iris, and the flowers only last for a couple of days, and that’s on the plant!

You know what else is a miracle? I’m working away on a new animation project, and it’s absolutely, stupendously, joyously fun! My heart overflows with buckets of wonder! I’m not exaggerating!

With this, I wish you Happy Easter (if you celebrate Easter), or just happy lovely day!

I’m off to the coast tomorrow for a long Easter weekend with family. Have a wonder-filled weekend!

    Happy Easter to everyone in California and beyond. Here in Guaymas, it’s Semana Santa with Pascua on Sunday.

    When the iris come up in my mother’s garden, I know spring must be here. They are fragile and quickly wilt indoors. But, they give us such a rush of perfume. My mother died May 1, 2006, but she lives on in her garden.

      Hi Ruth,
      Oh, I do love wild irises too! I have occasionally come across a meadow full of wild irises hiking in the Sierras in the summer. They are beautiful! And thank you for the Easter wishes! I did have a great Easter, I hope you did too!
