Irises in Bloom!

The landscaper who does our spring cleanup came to do an estimate last night and as I was giving him the tour of the grounds and telling him what to touch and what not to touch I found this.
My irises are about to bloom. I really love irises and lilies. A friend gave the irises to me a few years ago and I planted them on the corner of our house. They are desperately in need of dividing but they bloom profusely anyway. My only regret is that they don’t last longer. Every year I plant a little more stuff (with varying degrees of success) but these remain my favorites.

I also saw other amazing signs of spring along the side of my house but that can wait for better photography. Here’s a hint – I see pie-making in my summer plans.

I would like it noted, by the way, that it has now been 2 weeks since I bought yarn. It doesn’t sound like much of an accomplishment unless you are a fellow fiber addict. I had a few close calls (like when I saw
this) but I stayed strong. Tomorrow I’ll go to the LYS to check out the yarn possibilities for the VK top I want to make so all bets are off.

The iris is gorgeous. I'm jealous! I planted tulips one year and they never came back.
