April 2018 Orations
Spring has sprung! My garden is blooming. Iris are always among the first to come up and bloom. They flourish so beautifully and in a variety of colors. Not only am I going to feature them as my Photo of the Month and in my Featured series, but I am going to start a whole new page in the Flowers and Foliage section featuring only iris. For our Photo of the Month I have chosen a brilliant white iris which I took in black & white. The Featured Series will be an array of purple iris. Not all purples are the same when it comes to iris. I have chosen macros or close-ups of these particular blooms to show the beard on the petals, hence giving them the name bearded iris. Others will be featured on the new Iris page, showing a garden with rows of purple iris and individual iris in an assortment of colors.
I hope that you enjoyed Holy Week leading up to April 1st, and Easter or Passover which ever you celebrate. Lilies are the flower most closely associated with Easter, and I have featured them in prior years; this year I was drawn to the iris.
Think Spring! Think [be] Cool-Do Good. Help our less fortunate and provide a smile or a hug if you cannot provide anything else.
Peace from the Desert… Karen
