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.

Your iris are so beautiful. Those certainly are in my favorite list of flowers.

Flowers are so fun to photograph...especially with a macro lens!

Gorgeous iris! It is one of my favorite flowers Our iris did not do well over the winter, though the purple and white bloomed this year. As for my farm post, the grain was cut green with the seeds (looked like wheat to me) still intact, so it also qualifies as hay. I have seen these round bales in feed lots around Frederick with the cows munching away.

What a delightful vibrant post Marcia. It certainly made me smile.
I only have blue iris...that is up until I saw the yellow. Off to the nursery ;D

Beautiful! The dark purple iris you gave me bloomed so prettily for me - it's such a gorgeous color. I just love that big pop of color in the spring that irises bring.

I have got to learn how to make my Iris more healthy. Mine will not bloom so beautifully. I am not nourishing them successfully...

Just discovered your blog this morning, Marcia! I'm a recently retired teacher, too. Truly enjoying my days in the Springtime garden. Love your Irises! ♡Dawn
