Beautiful! Irises seem to have a shade of blue all of their own, a lovely gift from your husband.

I also enjoyed seeing all the frolicking on the previous post! They may be growing up but only children have that sheer abandonment and love of life, delightful :)

I love Irises too.

darla,

thanks for the id.


jan,

i know whatyou mean...what kind of blue is that somewhere between heaven and purple.

children have that ability to just let go and take it all in.
i love watching them be at play.

re,

who couldn't love these beauties, right?

Cut flowers are a gentle way to ease the longing for warmer days and spring's awakening. They are a beautiful grouping... and so nice to be surprised by them.

Love that color. How nice of dh to present them to you. Flowers in the home is just an extension of our great outside.
Loving my azaleas, forsythia,buttercups & snow drops. And even the little visitors on them.
