New to the Flower Garden


With a gift card from Mother’s Day, Sylvia bought a deep red bearded iris.  Unfortunately, I was not able to capture an image of it for a few days after she brought it home.  I’m posting this to keep a promise to those whose gift of love made it possible for Sylvia to bring home this amazing example of beauty.  Most of the iris around here look like this.


I’m still recovering from the latest foot surgery.  That makes it difficult to spend much time in this office chair, and it is even more difficult to walk any distance.  Sylvia and I are in good condition and even better spirits.  Life is good.

  1. Hope you are feeling better soon, Chuck!

    Love the irises. I have some in my yard and they stop blooming far too quickly.

    • They are a favorite in this house too. In the small town where I grew up, a woman was famous for her iris plants. Visitors came from around the world to visit and her purchase her special strains. Or so it was said back in the 50s.

  2. Iris are about the most spectacular flower at this time. They are all beautiful, but I particularly like the deep rose. I have one very much like that of yours.

    Wish your “surgical” exorcism was healing faster.
