As the flowers bloom
27 Jun 2013
I have never enjoyed flowers as much as I have this summer...We had a very long winter ending with a surprise blizzard on May 2nd that gave us 14 inches of snow...The wildlife suffered as well as the plants.
The wild Irises survived that we dug from the home place many years ago on the spot where the family house burned down in January of 1951...Even though we lost my 5 year old brother as a result of the fire the wild Irises bring love and meaning to his short life on earth.
The flowers that survived winter kill are blooming later this year. I also am a late bloomer.and decided flowers need life to celebrate their opening and will try to include my favorite selections before turning 70 in September.
