Honey Glazed Iris



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

It's been been cold and wet (but not snowing) on the Plateau, and I felt the need for something to cheer things up. This photo, from late April, is of Honey Glazed Iris, a bright spot in our yard.

I shall have New Year slightly earlier than you.

Happy New year.

George, if this works, send me a big bunch of the flowers. Things have really been dreary and we have had a lot of bad weather. It is rather depressing for this time of the year. Wishing you only the best the New Year has to offer.

I am sorry to hear about your weather, especially today. I hope it clears up soon and that your new year be blessed with days as sunny as this beautiful flower!

Thanks George, for this wonderful splash of yellow and cream..esp when I look out my window and see sleet and rain! You and Betsy have some of the neatest flowers..I'm glad you snap their pics when you do..we need some cheering right about now!!
Do hope you guys have a wonderful 2010, with plenty of sunshine..after all the snow that is coming your way next month of course. I'm keeping my fingers crossed you guys see plenty of inches of that white stuff down there..this winter.
Take care,
enjoy!

Thanks for the gorgeous photo, it certainly is cheerful! Its snowing, snowing, snowing here and has been off and on for almost three days and at least one more day to go! Your blog is always a bright spot in my day.

I agree with the need for something bright. That Iris looks good enough to eat. I think I will post about a trip in warmer weather. Blessing to you and yours for the New Year.

Here I am George only one day late, HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010

Your Christmas photo at the top is so charming I love the red. Yesterday after some time not blogging I visited Betsy's blog and admired all those lovely roses you grow and captured with breath-taking images to share with all of us. Today I see your golden yellow iris to add sunshine into our lives. We have been having rainy and snowy days these past 2 weeks. In fact, this morning another 6inches. John just came in from clearing the car and our front walk. I made him a hot cup of chocolate. He is relaxing watching an old movie, The 10 Commandments,
