what a year can do


The relocated irises, looking sparse.

By happy coincidence, the above photo popped up on some reminder this morning. So today, I whipped out my phone and took the photo below.


A year later, here’s what’s happening with the irises. Blooming and all 🙂

If ever there were a lesson in the value of leaving things to their own devices and being able to pretend you’re a gardener, this would come close. For a splash of closer colour, here’s the true beauty of a blooming iris.


In spite of the cold, in spite of the neglect, in spite of battling with thistles and soursobs, there they are: blooming happily 🙂
