    Katherine looks a little chilled in the second photo. I hope that you are all done with that kind of weather up there and can to begin to enjoy spring.

    there is something about new flowers with melting snow in the background that makes me grin! Matti

    From the looks of today, winter never happened! We’re due for sun and freakishly warm temps (81F) for the weekend. I love it, but the little flowers persevering through the melting snow did my heart good, too.

    Poor little irises. They look like they’re wearing blue seersucker suits.

    What a pretty iris. This time of year the weather is so changeable, we never quite know what to expect.

    wonderful photos and thoughts… how did the irises do in the heat… we had unusual warmth and mine said “I would rather have snow…”

      They did OK in the snow but the heat is wearing them out. A week plus with their color I think defines the word, “ephemeral” :) but they’re a joy while they last. The snowdrops meanwhile just glide on.

    They are on my list. So delicate.

      They’re such a wonderful spring reward in the empty garden, I can assure you :)
