In our woodland garden: Irises

“What in your life is calling you,
When all the noise is silenced,
The meetings adjourned…
The lists laid aside,
And the Wild Iris blooms
By itself
In the dark forest…
What still pulls on your soul?”

 (Rumi)

    1. Thank you. Ours are about done. We have several iris plants that apparently aren’t going to bloom at all this year.

  3. Where I live (Ottawa, Canada) we had a difficult, long winter. We’re not even close to iris time yet. This was a nice gift while we wait.

    1. Thank you. They were beautiful this year. Not all of our iris plants bloomed, though, and I have no idea why.
