From the Archives: Flowers in Our Yard



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

It may seem that roses are the only flowers Betsy and I have in our yard, but that's not true. We have Spring flowers in several beds, and we also have iris in two beds. This iris is Orange Harvest, one of the first that we planted when we moved here.

Such a soft pretty color. Usually all you see are here are the purple iris. Makes me long for the spring time.

So pretty and nice to see some color. Thanks for reminding me that all the brown of winter will soon be replaced with color again. :-)
