Thoughtful Thursday

They are a mere patch of blue in a sea of purple.





Planted by this farm's former owner, many years ago, they are like a gift each spring.  



And then.....someone else always wants in the scenic photograph.

  6. Irises are one of my favorite flowers....they are so faithful and ask so little from us. I just bought three pots of pink irises at the local farmer's market. Lovely photos...

  8. Makes me smile.....Here in Texas, one thing that you can always count on is finding a patch of irises where old home places once stood. Looks like these flowers are coming up wild, but then you can see an empty space right there in the middle of the shade trees.
    So pretty
