Iris Delight

I have missed my garden and I have missed my gardening friends and I have missed my best friend – all because of too much work and bad weather, in that order! I can never have too much work, because this means there is a positive feeling out there in the market! The bad weather isn’t really BAD – just when too much rain takes over the garden, I don’t feel like playing outside!

Well, I have been missing all the action!!!

My Louisiana Irises have been having a party without me! These flowers are always such a special treat because my best friend gave them to me (tons of rhizomes have grown since) and with the blooming I celebrate my friendship!! So, my buddy! Happy Iris Day! I miss you and wait patiently until we can garden together again! So I send these loving delights so you can see how beautiful they always are!

How beautiful!! What a great start to the sunny weekend ahead! So much to look forward to!

Happy gardening my friends xxxx

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Hi Charlie! Nice to hear from you – but I guess I’ve been the quiet one! 🙂
the gardening bug has bit! The sun is out and I’m back!!!!

Hi my Friend!! Your Irises are SO beautiful! I especially love the yellow one. As you know, my poor garden is a complete mess, partly ravaged by the winter storms and partly because … I’ve been too bust to do anything. And every time I want to get into the garden it starts to rain. But sunny days are coming and I’ve started planning what to do. Just going to approach it bed by bed and sort things out. I miss having a pretty garden 🙂

Hi my Best buds!! I know exactly how you feel. I am doing one area at a time – do what I can as long as I can. Taking each day as it comes and you know, it already shows!! Just a little time in the garden and the results are 100% improvement! I’m starting to get hooked again! xxxxx miss seeing your garden pics! 🙂

Oh Barbie what a treat to see irises at this time of year in my part of the world. I can understand too much work and too much rain as that has been my whole gardening season. I am finally out wrapping up the garden and planning for next year. And I can dream as I see your lovely iris party.

Hoping your weather and work schedule improve so you have more time in the garden.

Hi Donna – thanks, they are really such a delight! So funny to hear you say wrapping up the garden, when I am just starting! I hope to bring you lots of sunshine from the South side!

Your irises are beautiful. And how wonderful to have a sentimental attachment to them, too. When I see irises, I know that spring has certainly arrived. The light in your photos even look like spring. Enjoy it! Our summer flew by so fast this year, it seems – I’m trying to enjoy the garden before it gets too cold!

Hi Alan!! Oh dear! Been so scarce! Sorry! 🙁
I am so wanting the warm sunny days to stay for a while so I can get connected to my garden again! I can’t even imagine you guys having winter coming up! Ours felt soooo long! Will keep sending warm sunny rays your way!
