Flower of the Day – 30 March 2018

It has been much too hectic a year, even though it’s only March.

Today self drove home to Redwood City from Mendocino and it took her five hours.

She was feeling very tetchy — until she stepped into her backyard and saw that a few iris had started blooming.

There is no pattern to self’s gardening. She just plants bulbs here and there, wherever she feels like it.

Today, she saw that half a dozen spectacular (huge) iris are just unfurling by her kitchen door. In the side yard (where she took this picture), these three blooming iris are the first, but there’s almost a dozen more getting ready, close by.

Cee Neuner’s photography blog is an endless source of inspiration. Not only does she have the Fun Foto Challenge, she also has “Flower of the Day”

She tried getting close-ups of the irises, but the background was off.

Side Yard, Friday, 30 March 2018

Here are the side yard irises from another angle, farther away.

The backyard looks a little wild, but she likes it that way. She planted so many different things, without much forethought, just squeezing everything together. There’s actually a mature rose bush tucked right in the middle of those big bushes, but you can’t see it because it hasn’t started blooming yet.

HAPPY EASTER, ALL!

Stay tuned.
