For me, one of the highlights of every spring is the return of my little collection of blue Siberian irises. The yellow ones nearby – like the also-nearby pink roses on the trellis – had been blooming for some time while the blue ones had just formed their buds. Last week, I counted twenty buds. This week, they finally began to blossom out.
And I’ve fallen in love with irises all over again. Especially the blues!
