Last of the Late Spring Flowers

Bearded Iris by the labyrinth in the lower garden

After a second never-ending winter we looked forward to warmer weather

Bearded Iris by the chicken coop minus the chickens

Days where Gaia slowly awakened, stretching her arms to the sun

Bearded Iris rescued from the old home

I may love the hotter weather but I can’t help worry about shorter transitions
