What a beautiful surprise met our eyes as we were planting out the bell pepper plants last night.. the irises have started to bloom! Beautiful blooms of purple and yellow are dotting the circle garden near our drive.
This bed is special to me...I planted it when I was thirteen...when my family moved here. The bricks that circle the bed were once part of the outer wall of this house...the irises are bulbs given us by a neighbor. I spent a summer laying the bricks, working the soil, and planting the bulbs.
Even today, they still bloom!
