Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

This morning at 7 am.

By 10 am it looked like this.

Another one - a different shade of purple.

The gold ones in all their glory.

Finally, a third purple type of iris.

Still to bloom the purple Siberian iris and the yellow water irises around the pond.

Love the iris. Am anxious to get the ones Fred sent me out of their pots and into the ground so they might bloom this year but am afraid I have to get more done than I did today or nothing is going to get in the ground.

I have several white irises, and while I like them, I have one purple one - just one! - and it is my absolute favorite. I wait for it (just the one!) to open every year. Yours are gorgeous!

They are beautiful! Can't wait for mine to bloom up here!
