Well.....springtime is finally here in this part of the country....just mild days....and cool, cool nights. Here is a shot of my first Iris of the season. I have them in my beds with my roses and Lavender.
I am always amazed at how they spread all by themselves. This is the kind of gardening I like "volunteer gardening" is what I call it. I only have purple Iris....but when they all bloom...it does take your breath away.
In closing today...wanted to show you a small photograph that was purchased in Ganges on Salt Spring Island...many years ago. It is from the Lumina Gallery there....don't know if they are still around...but this piece struck me even then.
Isn't it amazing how everyone sees things so differently. I loved the treatment of this Iris...and I'm sorry can't remember the artist's name. Do any of my Canadian followers know who this is....it was a beautiful woman with such a distinctive style all her own.
She had several large pieces for sale....but we were there on our boat and there was no way we could bring them back home. So....I purchased this little piece of wonder as a fond memory and a beautiful piece of work.
Hugs from my place to yours,
BTW.......I apologize for not visiting much....been pretty busy with a grandson and a puppy......(O:(O:(O:
